Randy and family,

There are no words to express how sorry I am for your loss.
Even though I had not seen her for along time she was always a ray of sunshine whenever you saw her she was smiling.
She was a sweetheart for sure and now heaven added another precious angel. You have been in my thoughts and prayers everyday.

Although, you were the one Waits I never met, I know with a family like yours, you were just as caring as both your parents and siblings. I have been honored to know everyone of your family. I am so very sorry you have gone to be with your parents and brother. Those here left, will miss you so much.
