We were always blessed when Randy sang at church. He was always smiling and sharing with others. We were blessed to have gotten to know him when we lived in New Bern. We will be praying for his family and friends.

Randy and I were classmates at Duke and he later preached two successful revivals for me here in SC. I had the good fortune to talk with him on the telephone just before he received his crowns . Sherry you are in my prayers, and if ever you need anything don't hesitate to ask.

I have known Randy since the PH church days when we were in high school. A true lifetime friend. Full of wisdom and always made you laugh. Will never forget his label on things... tennis shoes were tennis pumps! I was blessed to have known such an awesome person. You will be truly missed Randy.
