We attend Memorial Baptist. So sorry for your loss. Randy was a special person and he always had a good word to say and always was very helpful at all of the funerals.

My sincerest condolences on the loss of Randy. I am in a 'stretch and balance' class with Corie, who has kept us up to date on her father's illness. Although I did not really know Randy, I did encounter him on my walks around the lake as he fished some years ago. While I never saw him actually catch a fish, he was smiling and clearly enjoying himself.

Randy's illness undoubtedly posed many difficulties for his family, but many members rallied around to offer comfort and support. It is evident that Randy was loved -- which is comforting in itself.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
