  2. Aunt Mae,
    My thoughts and prayers are with each of you today. Due to the unfortunate winter weather I am unable to be with you! Uncle Randy will be remembered in my heart and with a smile! His sense of humor and enjoyment of teasing will be a fond memory!
    I love you all!
    Niece Debbie Moore Buchanan

  3. Dear Mae, Lori, Lynda and RD
    I am so sorry to lose Randy out of the family. Right now, it looks questionable if I can get to Quincy safely. You all have been in my prayers the last few weeks, and now even more so. May our Lord grant you comfort, peace and His love.
