    Prayers for peace and comfort for all the family… Randall was one of the good guys and he will be missed by so many people. I loved talking to him. He gave me some “words of wisdom” when i was dealing with the loss of my dad. I sure was glad that he and Laverne were able to get me through all that… Huge hugs to each of you. RIP Randall
