Randy - I hope you know how much you are going to be missed for a very long time!! You taught me how to be a patient gardener. You listened when I didn't know I needed an ear to tug on. I kept thinking about you, then I learned you had passed. I hope you know how special you are to a whole lot of people. Thank you for being a friend.
