Randy, you will be missed. But remembered for your true friendship, the way you lived your life as a Godly man. Funny pranks with greased pigs at our Christmas plays. Prayers from you to our congregation in times of rejoicing to those times of sorrow we all experience in church.
And all the stories Adam told us about in your Sunday school class.
I know those boys gave you a hard time! Just so you know... you were loved by those boys. As you left them all with messages from God's word. You made a great impact on all our lives. Adam still speaks highly of all you instilled in him.
I'm sure all of us can, Close Our Eyes & Remember a fond and heartwarming memory you played a big part in.
You Will Be Missed.
But Never Forgotten...

Many years have past but we went to church with Randy. Our Grandson Tanner loved going home with the Richie's. He was a God loving man. He will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear about Randy. He was such a good, godly man. I am thankful I had the opportunity to know him and blessed by his seeds of love for everyone he knew. He made a lasting impression on Johnna and Toby, I am forever grateful to him. My prayers are with all and may your precious memories comfort you in the days ahead.
