    Praying for comfort and peace for the entire family during this sad time. God's word promises that we as believers will all be together again one day. Randy clearly made peace with God through his testimonies on Facebook. He is finally home where there are no more tears and no more pain. I will always remember those dimples and that contagious smile, until we meet in again...love Trish
