I speak for many members of the Randolph family in thanking Durward, once again, for the significant efforts he took in preparing genealogical charts and, ultimately, a book on the family. While Durward and I never met in person, it was a pleasure to speak with him, regularly during that major effort of more than 12 years ago. My family has copies of that book that we will share with our future generations, so the fruits of Durward's efforts will serve many, many more. To the Hall family, so sorry for your loss!
