SO sorry to only hear of your passing today (late) November 28 - 2021 on our daughter's birthday, which you were God Father to her. I can recall so many memories all through the years we have known each other. We went to school together. I was a year ahead of you. Then I married your cousin Jimmy Phillips. Many fond memories & so sad we weren't as close in the end as we use to be. I don't think anyone is as close as they use to be. I sure wish we had known of your passing sooner sweet friend & cousin...we would have been there. We missed your mothers passing too & I really hated that. She was so dear to me. Thank You for being with Jimmy at the hospital & for coming to see us afterwards. We will surely miss you our dear friend. We loved you. Rest In Peace.

Randy and I were cousins, but he was more like a brother to me. We called to check on each other often. We enjoyed going to the antique stores and out to eat. We always had great times. He helped me with different things. I am really going to miss Randy very much. Thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends.

Love,
Joyce Ledford

I met Randy through his cousin and he was always nice and friendly to me. I enjoyed the times he visited when I was there and I still recall him telling us about the car he recently purchased and how happy he was with it. My condolences to his family and friends.
