    RD was a wonderful person with a kind heart. He was always a great friend to me and will be missed dearly. We worked together a few years back and I could tell you of some predicaments we got into. He was always there to lend a hand without having to ask. Such a great loss. RIP my friend.

    Randy David was a kind soul. I did not physically see him face to face but just a hand full of times since high school but we spoke on the phone a few times and though social media. I felt like I could always say anything and it was like we had seen each other every day. He has always held a special place in my heart and will continue to. He will always be our thoughts. May David, Corliss and Kristen have the strength. RD will be greatly missed.
