Kathy, Rashel, Renee, Renissa, I am so shocked and sorry for your loss. I was planning on visiting Randy February 1st for his 60th with mom and sis for a dinner to honor his milestone birthday. Guess he will be having his dinner with JESUS now and we will just be thinking of him. There are no words to comfort you in times like these , so I wont even try....just call to vent or pass the time whenever you feel like it. Love you all, Karin.

It is with heavy heart, that I write this. In as much that I have lost my cousin and good friend, that pales in comparison to your loss of a husband, father, confidant and soul mate. Words cannot console the sorrow or grief of your loss. In this your time of need, may you find Gods consul. I offer Annie and my assistance, as we are but a short distance and a call away.

Godspeed on this journey my friend, Godspeed.

Dear Kathy and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. It seems like only yesterday when Heather and I pulled up in your driveway. Then you invited us to your picnic/park in the back part of your farm. It was such a beautiful setting. We really enjoyed reminiscing and sharing our childhood stories. It's hard for me to believe Randy has passed. He provided so much for his family - beautiful home, travels, patriotism - just to name a few. I really enjoyed the collection of antiques so beautifully showcased. Please invite your family to be our guest sometime in the future in Thousand Oaks, California.
Randy's cousin, Elaine (Bert and Josephine Laskowski's daughter)
