|Jeff, so sorry to hear about Randy,I still remember us riding mini bikes years ago.
Our prayers are with you and your family. |
||Linda & Gene Rutherford
|So sad to hear of Randy's passing. We remember
him from a small boy wearing short pants and
growing into an adult. When he was still in high
school he dug out for the basement and foundation
of our house. Anywhere we saw him, he always had
that smile. Randy put up a long hard fight these
last years but now God has taken away his pain and
reunited with Herman and Sharon in a better place.
Our love and prayers are with the entire family.|
|Your love and care kept him in your lives as long
as humanly possible, and now God has him; waiting
in his renewed healthy body to hug you again!
What a great day that will be!|
|Sandy and Jeff, I am so sorry you have lost a special brother. He will greatly missed by many whose lives were enriched by having known him. May God continue to comfort and bless you all.|
