To the family of Randy Williams, my deepest condolences. May you find comfort in the words found in the Bible which assures us that God promises there will be a resurrection, Acts 24:15. God promises at that time no one will ever say they are sick again or will suffer any illnesses - Isaiah 33:24
I would like to express my sincere condolences to Randy's family at this time of great loss. I have considered Randy a friend for many, many years and his contagious laughter clearly rings in my ears even as I write this. Randy was a very compassionate person and a great entertainer; he had a treasure box of hilarious stories that no one could tell in the same unique way as Randy could tell them peppered with his own crafted expressions. I will miss his calls to recount an old story or to share a new one. His calls always impressed upon me how important his family, friends and faith were to him. You will be missed by many Randy, but you leave behind memories that will keep your caring spirit close at heart.
In thoughts and prayers,
Dear family and friends,
News of Randy's death is very sad news, and much more so to each of you. Randy was a neighbor to me. He would often walk past my home on S. 4th & Buffalo where we could pause and shoot the breeze, as we say. On several occasions he and I played golf at Battle Island. Randy also counted me as his pastor. I recall the first time he came to church about 15 years ago, my sermon made mention of John Unitas, the late great quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts. After the sermon we had lots to talk about.
I regret that my retirement and move to California makes it impossible for me to take part in Randy's services. I know that Foster's will do well by you.
Death and loss are a part of life. Most comforting to me has been the Apostle Paul's brief statement, "Lover never ends." (I Corinthians 13) Our love endures. May it be so for you.
Grace and peace,
Rev. David C. Nethercott
