Randy was a huge support in my life and was always positive even when I was at my worst. He would do anything for Aaron and I. I will always remember sitting around the fires and talking with him and roasting hotdogs and marshmallows with Aarons daughter and my daughter. He was very wise and his life experiences will always stay with me. He treated Aaron and my daughters like gold and loved giving them gifts. I will miss him and think of him often.
