    Randall was one of the best neighbors anyone could ever have. Jerry and I are both going to miss our chats with him. He was always outside with his sweet dog Bunny. Randall would always let Bunny run to us so she could get some extra petting and hugs. Our neighborhood will not be the same without Randall’s big smile and wave. Our sincere condolences to Dorthy, his son Randy and all his family and friends.
