Linda, Ian and Kade I am so sorry for your loss. Randy was a great person and one of the best farmers I have ever waited on. I have always said I never minded waiting on him because yes he was gruff around the edges but he knew his stuff. You all are in my thoughts and prayers in the days to come. May there be peace for you all one day. Love, Peggy
