Maureen, I am saddened for your loss. Both you and Meg are in my thoughts and prayers
I learned a lot from Randy as his assistant editor back in 1996 at The Leader Newspapers (where I took over as editor when he left and stayed until 2004) that I still use today in my PR career. Like him “an old newspaper guy” I am a forever self-proclaimed “print gal” in this world of social media. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
I am very sorry for your loss. Please know that you and your daughter are in my thoughts and prayers. My sincerest condolences.
I came to know Randy all too little while he worked for UHD, where I serve on the faculty. In any of our contacts, however, he displayed both helpfulness and wit. Upon reading of his life, it's especially regrettable that we didn't share more memories as there were several "connection points" in our lives. I am sorry to be unable to attend today's service and reception due to prior conflicts, Please accept my condolences.
"Maureen, please forgive me for not attending your husband's service. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I wish I could have had a better opportunity to get to know you both. My husband, Dan, thinks quite highly of you and of your recently departed Randy. Should we be able to do anything for you please let us know. Always, Daniel and Barbara Monroe."
