I'm just now learning of Randy's passing in spring, 2014, and it's hard. I graduated high school with him and we kept in touch over the years, occasionally planning to meet when he returned to Minnesota, but never able to make the connection. It had been awhile since we spoke, and I had recently been trying some of his old contact emails and such, to no avail. Randy was a great guy, interesting and very, very intelligent, always smiling and laughing and fun to be around. I'll miss our conversations. I'm sorry for your loss, and I wish you all well.
