    I was the manager of volunteers for the time that Randy was at Mercy. He was the most dedicated and dependable volunteer we had. He had a great attitude and was a joy to work with. He will be greatly missed.

    Your a great man Randy. I have known you more than 25 yrs. I am so blessed to have been in your life. Truly an honor. Since day one you have been one of my biggest supporters and fan when I played semi-pro and through life.

    I love you man.

    I have volunteered with Randy for almost 15 years and he was a delight to work with as he always had a smile and ready wit. He was unique and there will never be another Randy. I will miss him as will everyone at Mercy who had contact with him.
