Bob and Dorothy were great friends of ours for many years. We traveled to Canada with them and when we moved to MS and they visited us we went to the Gulf coast with them. So many good times with the Randell family. He and I still kept in touch and I just thought last week that I needed to call him. He was a great guy and loved his family so much. Even though I have not seen you children in years you all have a special place in my heart. So sorry. May he RIP.
