Thursday, March 8, 2018Our greatest sympathy to the Booth family for Dick's loss. He has been a loyal friend and counselor to the J F James family generally and to me personally and will be most sincerely missed. His obituary details a lifetime of outstanding service both to the legal community and the community at large. We have been the fortunate recipients of his kindness and competence for a long time. Godspeed, Dick.

Wednesday, March 7, 2018I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Booth was a friend of my mother's and he worked with her on real estate issues. After my mom passed away Mr. Booth helped me with numerous real estate issues. He was a sage adviser and mentor. I am thankful for knowing him, and the world is a little less kind with his loss. sincerely Marilyn Hodges

Wednesday, March 7, 2018I was saddened to learn of Dick's passing. It has been a while since we had seen each other. We were in law school together and when I had a case in Sumter (I practice in Greenville), I would always stop by to see Dick. During law school, I talked Dick into playing music with me at a middle school where my friend's daughter was a student. I play a little guitar and Dick played a lot of everything else. That day he brought his banjo. I told the kids I was John Denver (one of them believed me) but Dick was the real hit. His banjo playing took over the classroom. What a great guy. I regret I didn't make it to Sumter more often to see my friend.

Wednesday, March 7, 2018Gayle, Jayne and Richard: I am writing as an old friend from the past-----a Charlestonian ,Citadel graduate and USC law school graduate. Please know that Dick and I first met in law school and were good friends, especially during this three year period. He was without question a substantial person and a most capable and dedicated attorney. More importantly, Dick Booth was a nice person and a good person-----a true Christian gentle man. Accordingly, I was so saddened to learn of the passing of your dear husband and father. Please accept my sincerest sympathy. God bless Dick and God bless you. Sincerely-------Allen Young

Tuesday, March 6, 2018Dear Gayle and Richard: We were all saddened to learn of Dick's sudden passing. Although I am older than he was, he started practicing the year before I did. He immediately welcomed me into the Bar, an act of friendship that I still appreciate after 40 years. As a practicing attorney, he was always great to work with. As a judge, he had a firm grasp of the law; he always explained courtroom procedure carefully and in a way that litigants could understand, especially in his foreclosure sales; and in making his rulings, he was always totally fair and unbiased. All of in the Bar and in the greater Sumter community will miss him very much. Your family has the sympathy of the people of Sumter. Sincerely, Kenneth Hamilton

Tuesday, March 6, 2018Dear Gayle, Jayne, and Richard, Don't know where to begin. We are so saddened at the loss of Dick. I go back a long time with the Booth Family. Lots of fond memories whether it was in business years, in the farming years, in the law practice years, or in the judgeship years. Could not say good bye with mentioning the Naomi & Warner Coffee Club. Good laughs and good Clemson times. We are so fortunate to have known Dick and called him "Friend." With Best regards, Rogers
