    Sad to hear of Randy’s passing. But consoled in the fact that he is no longer suffering. Randy spoke often of his family and especially of his precious neices and nephews. He came and shook my hand and asked how I was doing only a few days ago at work. His handshake was as if he knew it would be the last time. Randy was not a quitter and hung on until he could no longer. He made everyone he met feel better for being in his presence. Randy was a hard worker and a joy to be around. He will be sorely missed by all that knew him. Rest in peace my friend!

    Dearest Patsy and family,

    My deepest condolences to all. I did not know Randy personally, except through his beautiful mother, Patsy, but I know he put up a ‘good’ fight! He is now in the arms of our Savior and his body, mind and spirit are resting peacefully.
