Your final words to me were so kind. I was talking to you when you took your last breath, and yet this still feels so unreal. I still haven't found it in me to delete the last message you left me on my phone yet. I guess I want to keep you with me. I feel so happy that I was able to get to know you. You have brought so much joy into all of our lives. Celia still ask's about you all of the time. She tell's me that it's okay, and not to be sad because you are with God now. I know this in my heart to be true. You were without a doubt my best friend in life. I will always miss you. Your never to be forgotten in heart.

I am shocked to hear this tragic news. I know Randy from my frequent visits to Harris Teeter and he always went out of his way to be helpful and friendly to each and ever person he saw. My thoughts and prayers go out his family and all those whose lives will feel his absence.

I miss Randy so much! He brightened my days with his smile. No one has ever been nicer to me than Randy was. He made me feel special all the time. I wish I had 20 yrs more to get to know him. I feel so much sorrow for our loss.
