I have known Randall for many years because he and my husband Larry are cousins and grew up together. Randall was a kind person, and always there when you needed him. He liked to joke around and have fun. Whenever he visited our home, you would know he would always drink two or more cups of coffee. He liked the Beatles, especially John Lennon. He was a fan of the University of Kentucky Wildcats. He was a big Star Wars fan, and always enjoyed all the books and movies that came out.

Randall, I will miss your cheerfulness and sense of humor. I like to think of you in Heaven having fun with your friends and family who are there.

I met James when he was a client for Help at Home. I enjoyed the 3 1/2 years I got to talk to him, visit with him at his home and seeing all the animals he and Michelle had. He was a very sweet, kind, respectful man. I know he has gained his Angel wings. I send my love and prayers to Michelle. May God Bless you and the family of Randall. I send my deepest sympathy. R.I.P

I have so many fond memories with Randall; from the times we spent riding to school together as kids, our travels on athletic trips, and fond memories reminiscing the past at our annual schools’ reunions. He was such a joy to hang around. I extend my prayers to Michelle and the Haycraft family. Randall will be deeply missed by all who loved him.

Words cannot explain how deeply saddened I am. Randall was a fighter until the very end and he will be missed by many. I remember the most how much he loved to sing and how happy it made others.. He was a good man, may he rest in peace.

My heart goes out to Michelle and Randalls family. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

I remember Randall from way back when I was a teen. He was the most sweetest guy I know. He would always let me get away with things that my mom would've had a cow over. He will be missed.
