Randy, my first memories of you is when you and Terry stayed at our house while your mom and dad attended the General Assembly after your family moved to West Helena. I remember you bringing some robot computer over with you and my dad having fun with it asking stupid questions trying to trip it up with its answers as you laughed at my dad getting beat by this robot. I remember your sweet kindness that you offered to many neighborhood kids who loved hanging around you...for no other reason than you making them feel wanted and important. I remember you trying teach me and whoever else wanted to join in on a tennis lesson over at the South 9th street tennis courts.... While your brother Terry was on the other court in a match with someone....and your tennis students would somehow always disrupt Terry's game when we would hit our tennis-ball onto his court.... Terry's face turning red as he would get upset and you never failed to crack your great big smile at him with pleasure knowing your students just cost him a point or two. (Smiling Big Now). Randy, my heart danced when I read that you Met Jesus several years ago....So I'm smiling now thinking how you portrayed a Man's (Jesus) character to many people, young and old, all through your life. Now you are there walking and talking with the one Who Loved you the Most--JESUS. Enjoy your New Life in Glory.

Randy was way too smart for working at ConAgra! He was very knowledgeable in every facet of life. Randy and I had heated , but friendly, debates about politics. We have lost a good man. RIP

Randy, I am thankful to have known you as my brother-in-law and friend. Your deep voice and laugh will be always remembered. Your thoughtfulness of gifts, for me, Teddy Bears and bears, are special treasured memories of you through the years and I am pleased to still have those to remember you by. Our great comfort is knowing that you are rejoicing in heaven and you went into the arms of Jesus, no longer in pain and suffering and we will see you again. May God comfort, give His peace, to all who knew and loved Randy at this time of sadness in the loss of his presence with us, he will be missed. Love, Melody
