Sorry to see Bob has passed away. My wife and I have known the Randols for many years and have had some great times with Rick and Chris and their families. Bob and Ricks uncle were in Delphi a while back and I'm glad I got to see him as he was a special friend to my family. Chris is and always will be a part of my family as we spent a lot of time together when he was younger and I really had fun tormenting him. Now he has a great family of his own and his wife and children are very special to our family. Our thoughts and prayers to the entire Randol family .
