To the family and friends of Randy Akins, please accept my condolences. May you find comfort knowing that those who died, God keeps them in his memory. And at Psalms 116:15 they are precious in his eyes.

Randy was a customer of mine for at least 15 years, maybe more. He was a genuine person who never sugar coated a thing! You knew when he loved you and you knew when he was mad at you. And to be honest that was the best type of customer to have. On top of being our customer though he was our friend. He offered his help more times than I can count... and I know he would have always been there for me. To my dear sweet pea, Rest In Peace. You will be missed beyond measure.

We are grateful that Randy was a part of our lives.
Love to all of you.

To the Akins family
Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Randy will be missed.
