You have been blessed to come from an excellent family🙏🙏

Randy and I grew up together--and shared so much in our early years. I knew Randy as athletic, fun, and sincere. Randy was positive--and and stayed that way all through his fight with the disease that conquered his body--but not his spirit. I'm so glad for his life--I just wish he could have had more of it! I'd like to express my heart-felt sympathy for Randy's entire family--with whom I was also close. Randy--this isn't farewell--it's good-bye for now. Until we meet...Ken Davis
