So sorry to read of Randy’s passing. I worked as a welding instructor at Cat with Randy in the 70s & 80s. He was not only a very talented welder, but also a great friend with a big heart. My prayers & condolences to the family. RIP Randy . . . wish we had one more chance to “sit down and neighbor for a spell.”

I am so sorry for the loss of Uncle Glenn. I always loved him and respected him. He had a great sense of humor and could crack a joke in a second. He taught me how to sharpen a knife you can shave with. My love and prayers are with Aunt Marilyn, cousins Randy, Bob, Sandy, David and their families.
