I worked with Randy for a couple of years with Combined Insurance before I went active duty. He was a great friend and colleague during that part of my life. He was at my wedding after I came home on leave to marry Katy. I carried his picture in my wallet for years I didn’t carry many pictures expect my wife and kids. I regret that I didn’t get a chance to link up with him again after moving back home recently. He was a great guy, a friend to many, and a brother in Christ to all. I’ll see you again one day brother Randy.

I have always enjoyed seeing Randy. He made a special effort to visit with people he loved. He was not content with just a chit chat visit. He wanted you to know how much he loved you and how God had blessed him. Life is always too short.
