    I am so sorry for your loss. I remember so many good times with Randy and all of you. Karen I remember you, Chris, & myself carpooling to work together at the Galesburg Mental Health Center. Why was I the only one marked as “late” out of that group? I remember when Randy stayed with Chris, the Children, and myself when we lived in Gilson. He was always willing to do anything for anybody. He truly enjoyed living. May God now grant eternal peace to his soul. May Gog bless you all and keep you close in your time of sorrow.
