I am so sorry for the loss of Randy. His laughter.and love for chocolate covered pretzels will live in my memory along with so many memories especially the early years. I remember you going out on your first blind date; you were so nervous...who knew he sweep you off your feet for the next 32 years. I have told him numerous times how thankful I was that he took good care of you and the children. Randy was a great provider. His love and compassion for animals was also truly inspiring. I know Shanel always enjoyed his attention. God bless you and comfort you during this journey .

Dearest Mary- Altho I am no longer living with Larry I still am part of the family. Keeping contact with Kathy and Jerry and of course Candy will always be my daughter.
I have so many memories of the kids and the park, fun times.
I’m so terribly sorry for your loss. Remember the good times, the love you shared and trust in the Lord he will see you thru!
Blessings to you and your family!
