my good friend randy passed away last night after a brave two -year battle with cancer.
i loved him very much.
there was not another father who loved his children more,
nor a pastor who carried the burdens of his people more faithfully,
nor a friend who more genuinely sought god's advice for how best to serve each of us.
randy was singular in his ability to love.
he is now, thankfully and well-deservedly, caught up in the laughter of christ. he has been baptized into this new life by our tears, and we wish him extra grace for his new adventure.
