    So sorry to hear of Randy’s passing. He was a special friend and leaves a large space that can not be filled. Go rest high on that mountain, Randy.

    Prayers for your family. I grew up with Randy at Freewill Baptist Church in Kingsport, TN. His father Sherman was my Sunday School teacher for many years. His race is run and he’s home.
