    Some of my favorite memories of Randall were visiting with my cousin, Noreen, and driving the back roads of Georgia & Alabama delivering laundry. I don’t know if I ever got over the smell of the tabacco company though! We loved going to Panama City Beach too! He always made us laugh and teased us. He will be missed.

    I’m so sorry the World will no longer have Randall’s presence & his humor, but he will live on in our hearts. I’ve known him since we were babies @ Lafayette St Methodist in Dothan. He laughed at many things & was a good audience to other’s jokes. A kind hearted friend I will always treasure
    Thanks for the memories Randall 🥰
