After Dick entered the banking business world he went by Richard but in High School we all knew him as Dick.  During our Senior Year in High School, Liz and Dick, Mousey (Wanda Roden), Phillip Grace, Ann Landrum, Sarah White, and Bill and me all ran around together and went everywhere together.  Oh, what fun times we had!!!  We were inseparable.  Those were TRULY "the carefree good old days."  After High School we all went our separate ways but have still kept in touch.  We are all "friends for a lifetime."  Bill and I married in 1963 and they were both in our wedding.  They married the next year and we visited back and forth.  Mousey was killed in a car wreck years later.  After my divorce from Bill, I moved back to Greenville with a new baby.  I visited Phillip Grace in the hospital.  We took up our friendship right where we left off.  A few years later Phillip died.  After I married Sunny, Liz kept my son for me while I worked.  Over the years we lost touch and we moved away.  When Dave Grayson asked me to help him with this website I was able to contact everyone again.  I'm sorry to say I haven't kept in touch with Dick.  I do know that he LOVED to play golf and go on long motorcycles trips with a friend and was a REALLY GREAT husband, father, grandfather and banker!!!  If memory serves me correctly, I went to him in order to obtain financing for my first car.  Liz and Dick were High School sweethearts and had been married for nearly 50 years.  That speaks VOLUMES for both of them!!!  It is my prayer that I may be supportive of Liz as she faces life without Dick.  I was very honored to call Dick my friend.  He will DEFINITELY be missed!!!

It is difficult to say goodbye to a good friend you have 

known most of your life.

Richard was one of the good ones and he will be missed

greatly. We spent many happy days on the golf course

the last one during the 50th class reunion.

Rest in peace, my friend the memories are filed away.

I have good memories of Dick.  Like others of us, Dick financed several automobiles for me, one as far away as New Orleans.  Dick said to me, "Aren't there any bankers in New Orleans?"  I said, "Yes, but I want to finance it with you!"  He agreed.  That would never happen today.  Later, I lost a job, and although I had paid ninety per cent of the loan, he called and said, "Richard, let's just write this off, and call it a loss.  Don't worry about it."  I had to beg him to let me pay it off, as I did.  So though my interactions were business focused, and seldom, Dick was incredibly kind in the way he related to me.  I have always thought of him as a model business person.  He will remain in my thoughts, as he has throughout my life!  Richard Nourse
