    We are praying for Randa’s family at this difficult time! Friends and family support can be a blessing at difficult times. Your Mom gave so much to others! She always had a big smile! Her memories will live on! She was a role model for me to emulate! God bless you all!

  2. Our deepest condolences to Randa’s family and friends. She is gone too soon and will be missed by so many. Randa was my closest cousin and when I last saw her, a few weeks prior to her passing, I spoke to her about it being a shame that we went so many years without any contact. Then we reconnected in recent years and I treasure the time I got to spend with her. I called her my oldest cousin because she was 90 days older than me. Sandy and I will miss her dearly and cherish the time we got to spend with her. We love you Randa and will miss you so. Until we meet again.

  3. RIP. My condolences to the family.
