  2. Deb,
    I am so sorry about Randy. He was a wonderful man and I loved our conversations when you brought the girls into West Lancaster.
    You were always so happy together and Randy always wore a smile. You loved and cared for each other. That was so evident when you were together.
    I know how much he will be missed by you and all he knew.

    I am very sorry to see about Randy’s obituary in this mornings paper. Randy and I spent many memorable days working in engineering at Fincor as I sat right next to him for a lot of years ( about 15) in Engineering. He and I compared notes on just about everything that would come up.
    Randy was a good friend and co-worker
