    I am so sorry about your dad’s passing. I enjoyed all the years he spent coming into the bank. He was such a flirt. That was his m.o. He always waved when passing by the house. I will miss his joyful nature. He was recognized all over Greenville and will be sorely missed. Deb and Jay, you have my thoughts and prayers. I hope love surrounds you now and forever.

    Jay and family: Dick always had a great sense of humor. I remember his laughter and jokes. He could scale a tree as fast as a squirrel (and he wasn’t much bigger than one!). The time you die is more important to God than the time you were born. I’m sure Dick will be missed.
