Sheri I am so sorry for you and your famlies loss. I first met Randy when my wife and I were operating Handgunners Inc. Indoor Range in Alamance Co. I enjoyed a lot of time together when he would stop by and visit or attend different events that we had. I am very thankful that that I met Randy and became friends with you and him. He was a very good man. He will be missed by all.

Mike
