I heard about Randy’s death and wanted you to know you’re in my thoughts and prayers.
I was able to read his obituary and watch the photo montage of his life. Julie, it honored Randy and showed his love for you and all his family! Having grown up attending catechism and mass with Randy and his family at Holy Family Catholic Church, I even recognized his cute face in the school picture of him as a little boy. He always had a sweet, gentle demeanor and smile!
Julie, I’m thinking of you ... knowing you miss the man you shared your life with the last 43 years. Your children and grandchildren are very blessed to have a mom and dad that stayed together through thick ‘n thin. May Our Heavenly Father send you all abundant blessings and consolations in your loss.

Julie, I was just thinking of you this past weekend as I was visiting my brother TJ. That always seems to stir up some Woograin memories. 😊
I am so sorry for your loss. Condolences to you and your family. You are in my thoughts. With love, Jodie Anderson

First a customer and then a friend over 40 years, gave us many opportunities to share conversations about work, and family. He was always polite and considerate, and always had a smile to share. What a blessing to have had him as a customer and friend! Julie, condolences to you, your children and your family.
