Randy, I carried you inside me for 9 mon. Its so hard to make any sense of this. You and your brothers are my world. I was so blessed to have you as my son. You always knew how to calm me down when I would get upset. Remember the first time I had to get on to you and you were about a foot taller than me and we started laughing. I will see you on the other side my sweet son. I love you so much I would have died in your place, God loves you more and he did die for you. I know that Heaven is a better place with you there. Until we meet again my son,my heart, my life.
Love forever.
Momma

My Aunt Nancy, Randy's grandma, would have cookouts and family gatherings when I would come to visit. Uncle Hank would cook on the grill, all the kids would be playing in the yard, and the rest of us would be getting everything ready. Food was done and it was time to say the blessing. Uncle Hank was usually in charge of that. During the blessing, Randy and Caitlyn got to arguing because they were both accusing each other of having their eyes open during the blessing. Randy was just a little guy. The blessing stopped and the arguing continued lol. Randy was not taking the blame for having his eyes open during the blessing. He said whoever said he had his eyes open are all liars. He said it wasn't him because he saw Caitlyn with her eyes open, lol. You left us some great memories Randy. You were always making us laugh. You are at peace now and have gained your wings. The struggle is over and the dark clouds are gone. There is nothing but bright, sun shiny days ahead for you now. You have gone too soon my little cousin, but God had better plans. Forever in our hearts, til we meet again... ❤

My precious and handsome Nephew. There are no words for the grief we feel on the day Randy left this earth. He was so loving and always so close to his brothers and cousins. Blake and Austin grew up with celenas boys and were like brothers. Michaela came along and they all felt a need to protect her. Every time I would call your Celena I couldn’t believe how grownup Randy sounded. He. went from a little boy to a grown man all too quickly. I can remember the boys hunting Easter eggs together and all five of the boys would race to see who could find the most. I have a video of Randy and Austin as babies and Randy was in the walker and Austin was standing beside the walker and they were Sharing a drink with a straw In it and each of of them would take turns sipping it. Then Austin leaned down and kissed his head. I could go on and on. Rest in eternal peace now sweet Randy. God needs you in His beautiful Garden where He. only chooses the best to reside in it and to beautify it. We will always hold you close to our hearts and you will always be a part of us til God calls us home one day ourselves. We love you forever. Rest In Peace Randy.
