My heart goes out to Christene and the Krisl family and friends of Randy in your time of sorrow. I know Randy has left you with many precious memories from his 59 short but full years with us. When death robs us of someone we love very much, it causes much sadness and grief. Our loving heavenly Father, "Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." (Psalm 34:18) Isaiah 33:24 guarantees us: "And no resident will say "I am sick," ever again. Revelations 21: 4 says: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." The family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences. Feel free to me contact me at my email address: myranj@centurytel.net

What made Randy unique and special to me was his laugh and his smile, he could walk into a room and the party just seem to start. We parted ways a while back but he was still in my heart and he always will be. I miss you my friend and knowing you don't walk the earth anymore has taken a little piece of me away.

Please accept my condolences. Jehovah God truly wants you to look to him for help. He is the God of all comfort (2Corinthians 1:3, 4) He lovingly provides us with the hope of seeing our loved ones again by means of the resurrection. (Job 14:14, 15) May this message bring you comfort and hope.
