have a memory or condolence to add?


January 28, 2019

I was so sorry to hear about Randy. We had so much fun bowling with both of you. I wish I could have been there today but at the moment I do not have a car. I think of all the good times and wish we could have a few more but that's life. Love to all the family.

Randy, I have such great memories of us when we was little... we could hardly wait to get off the bus to play was always the better player, we used to build snow forts in the winter, and have premade snowballs on the shelves, and have major snowball fights across the street, we even got married when we was about 4 or 5, I still have the picture. .but remember our first day of kindergarten, my Mom drove us to school and when we were getting in the car, you accidentally shut my finger in the car first hour of school my Mom and I was in the bathroom in the classroom running cold water on my finger...I'll never forget was a great friend. more like a brother...I still have your green purey bolder, and I will bring it with me tomorrow, I was always going to mail it to you...but it got stuck in a lead crystal candle holder......anyhow, Wanda it will be nice to meet you. .and your children...Judy Carlisle

Randy was a lot of fun to be around. He had a way of delivering jokes in a serious way, so that you couldn't tell if he was joking or not! He will be missed. You guys are in our thoughts.

Dad, it’s so very hard to say goodbye as you’re gone far too soon. I’ve had a big smile on my face and lots of tears listening to so many people reminisce about their memories of you. I know you’re in a better place now. Until we meet again...
