Walter Banks. People from all over Dothan and the Wiregrass

Susan Brazell Smith, Mike and Sandy Schmitz, Sam Cherry, Starla Matthews,
Mayor Thomas, Comiss. Matthews and Comiss. Newsome. Tom and Jane Ziegenfelder.
And many more guests. [including Pastor Fain's motorcycle club]

Tom Ziegenfelder, [a man with a servant's heart] shared re Walter's message Sunday at First Baptist.
'It's amazing how a common man like Walter can be an inspiration to so many.
You don't have to have billions like Bill Gates. Walter serves people.
We can all learn a lot from Walter about Christianity and serving our fellow man.' -TZ

Young and old crowded around Walter before and after the service to have their picture with him.
It was amazing. Like a rock star. I've never seen such a diversified crowd attracted to the same person.
Young and Old. Rich and Poor. All drawn to Walter Banks by his compassion and love.
A simple man who serves others and treats everyone the same.
Walter has the gift of Greatness. 'The ability to make those around you feel great.'

Thousands watched by TV as Walter shared and blessed everyone with his compassion and wisdom.
It was a joy to interview him and share the same stage w/ he and Johnny Fain.
We gave a Chipper Jones jersey to Russell Craig. [ 12 years old] He's a kind, young boy who can't see.
But his dedication and smile is seen by everyone. He was thrilled. He's a big Braves fan.

I'll never forget Tallulah Snell winning the Brian McCann autographed baseball from Walter.
She knew a baseball has 1 seam. She was thrilled to win and meet Walter.

The message, just like Walter, was simple. Serve Others with Compassion.
The message of the cross is simple, too. That's why so many miss it. It's a gift.

Walter reminds me of my mother. He doesn't sit around studying the Bible.
He's out doing the Bible. We need more doers. No Doubt.
You can know all about Jesus/God and not know him.
If you know him personally ..You'll reach out with his compassion.
Enjoyed our visit to Mike Schmitz Automotive Group, Monday morning.
Mike and Walter have a kindred spirit. Serving and Giving to Others.
Mike invited Walter to speak to his Sales People.
We left Mike's office and walked over to the meeting.

Walter shared .. ' In 2003 Mike ran in the Iron Man Race.'
'His time was [ Walter quoted the exact numbers he had read on Mike's plaque in the office] '
and then said .. ' How bout a big hand for Mike . ? '

They clapped and everyone was impressed that Walter remembered those numbers
from Mike's office. Walter reminded everyone.' Be sure and Pay attention.'
They really enjoyed Walter and he enjoyed spending time with them.

We really enjoyed our visit to the George Washington Carver Museum [ Old Bus Station].
Thanks to Sarah Woodham for calling Miss Francina Williams who opened the museum on her day off.
Walter, Pastor Fain and myself were amazed at the history and treasures in this local museum.
Everyone should go by and visit. You will learn a lot.
You'll really enjoy meeting Miss Francina. She has great passion for her work. Wonderful lady.
I really enjoyed my visit yesterday to the Swedish Match Cigar Plant [ in Dothan].
250 employees. Very Dedicated. Very Friendly. 1 million, 1 hundred thousand cigars a day.
Thanks for the educational tour by Tony Martin [ the Factory Mgr] and Larry Pressnell

His last show in his Clear Channel Studio. It was memorable 4 sure.

Really enjoyed the Rod Stewart Concert in Bham last Friday nite.
Great seats. [Those Maddox Girls were throwing down.]
I told Laura and Vicki this was one of the greatest bands I'd ever heard.
Told my friend Glenn they sounded like the Stones.
He informed me .. Rod's lead guitarist is Ron Wood of the Rollling Stones.
