I was so saddened to hear about the death of my friend Randall.Although I lost touch of him in my adult years, we were childhood friends who shared many a day with each other. I would oftentimes go home with him on a Friday after school and spend the weekend with him, or vice versa. We also spent many a Sunday afternoon at either my or his house after church. Memories I cherish to this day.
My prayer is you will find peace in the Lord and the wonderful memories you have of him. Viewing all the pictures of him flooded my heart with all the memories we had. He will be sorely missed. Your family is in our prayers.
David and Janet Havard
