Ashley informed me of what was going on with you and your family with the kids and your Dad. I am so sorry to hear all that you are going through and I know what I type can't make all the pain go away. I am praying SO hard for you guys right now. I want you to know that I am really lifting your Mom up right now. When I see her with your Dad and the kids and I see how happy she was, I know that she has a lot of love in her and she must be hurting beyond anything I can understand. We will continue to read and be updated and just know that people you don't even know (my prayer families at First Baptist) are praying for you guys!!

Wow- you've got me again. Completely in awe and totally inspired by you and your rock solid, astounding faith and perseverance through this toughest of trials. You humble me beyond words, and I am so proud to call you my friend. If I may ask, how is your mom doing? I think of her so often and pray that she is okay.

Though I never got to meet anyone else in your family, I am so happy that I was blessed to work with Randy from August 2003 through his retirement. He would remember me as David Rice, the Credit Sales Manager from JCPenney Credit Services. I only got to visit with him every other month or so, but always enjoyed our meetings. Not just from a business standpoint, but because he was always such a wonderful person to spend time with. His faith in God, love of his Saviour, and commitment to making his role one that went far beyond that of a Store Manager made him unique among his peers. It was clear that he was ready, willing and eager to be a counselor and beacon of hope to any associate who needed support. He never took business so seriously that it got in the way of his values. Something far too rare.

All in his family should know how much he loves you. It was clear from the pictures in his office and the way his face lit up when he spoke of Marsha, their children and grandchildren. He spoke with minimal frustration about the cramped lifestyle that intermin housing presented while waiting for the move to Mt. Juliet...only the joy that retirement and the relocation would bring. He wanted so much to be near his family.

I learned only yesterday of his illness. If possible, please let him know that his friendship has meant a great deal to me and I have missed seeing him. While I am so very sorry about the turn of events with his health, I know that we will meet again.

Romans 8:18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

You don't know me but your mom and dad were good friends back in the Toccoa years. We were fellow 'saints and sinners' at the 1st Presbyterian Church. I have kept up with your family through Christmas letters all these years. A number of us have been keeping up with your Dad's situation through your blog. We have all been greatly blessed by your faith and even now you are being a witness and a blessing to all of us. You all were in our prayers in Sunday School this morning. Know that you are not alone in your sorrow and even in this you all are being used by God to show us more about Him.
