I first met Randall in 7th grade in Lafayette grammar school and now 65+ years late i’m saying goodbye to my old friend.
Through the good times and bad he steadfastly held his loving family and friends close and never wavered in his compassion for his fellow man.
You will be missed old buddy. Ray
RIP COUSIN. I WAS YOUNG THE LAST TIME I SAW YOU, BUT I REMEMBER YOU CLEARLY
SEE YA SOON AND WE CAN ALL CATCH UP
Uncle Randall you were a great uncle too me. You and Aunt Lucy took me in during the summers growing up as a kid and treated me like one of your own kids. You were a funny man and quite intelligent. I know your not suffering anymore and your in a Better place. You will be missed by your family, but be remembered for all that you did for your family. I love you Uncle Randall and I will see you once again someday. Say hi to Grandma Mercer and Micheal Quirk for me.
Love Richard Mercer (Nephew)
Randall, we met 59 years ago. You were always kind and loving to all of us. We will forever remember you and your kindness. Thank you for inspiring me so many long years ago in my walk with Christ.. you were such an inspiration.
May the roads rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back,
may the sunshine warm your face,
And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
