I didn’t know Randy but his words still carry on. Jim Young who left his reflection in 2018, is now my father in-law and still speaks of Randy to this day and leaves his words of wisdom with the world. Randy sounds to be a true hero and will never be forgotten! Always pressing the fight for those who can’t!
