To the one and only person in my life that made everything right. I miss you with all my heart and soul. Today is 2 years. Sometimes it feels like yesterday and sometimes like an eternity. Everyday is a struggle without you. You brought so much joy to my life and to so many others. As time goes on without you one thing I know for sure is you will always live in my heart and not a day will go by that I don't think of you and our life. I hope to make you proud of me in everything I do. Until we meet again.
Love you now and forever.

Randy; I only visited with you once, but I looked forward to a second visit. I wanted to tell you how much I appreciated you looking out for my parents over the years, and the kindness that you showed them. You are a good man, and you are missed and thought of often.

Randy- I was only graced with your presence a few times, but know you are a good man. Thank you for the kindness you showed my mother over the years. Please continue to watch over Shelly and your loved ones. You are now a guardian angel which is a big responsibility and you are highly qualified for the job!

Can't believe it been 2 years. It feels like yesterday. I miss you more and more everyday daddy. I will never forget what you taught me, what you gave to me and what you did for me. You were truly the one man I looked up to. I just wish that the boys would have had you in their lives as long as I did. But I will never let them forget what a great man you were and I will teach them all that you taught me, in the hope of them becoming at least half the man you were. I love you always and forever.
