Some of my fond memories of Randy involve VBS. Randy was always such a vibrant part whether setting up the classrooms for the Bible stories or taking part in the many skits involved. One of my favorite memories took place in the kitchen at Immanuel during VBS. Carol mentioned that Randy could wake himself with his snoring. So then Randy demonstrated it for me. He had a great sense of humor. Sorely missed.
