I am saddened to see that Randall has gone to be in heaven to be once again with his family. I have not seen much of him for many years, but I remember when we had all the family reunions and you could hear Connie yelling for or at Randall to stop or come on. Thank you for your service to our country.  He will be missed. Happy Trails to you until we meet again,  cuz.
