    Default Randy Johnson

    It is with a sad heart that I must announce that my father has passed away. I want everyone to know that in the past weeks as he was battling his cancer, he had his laptop by his side and constantly viewed this website, reading the posts and looking at all of the pictures. For that, I say thank you to everyone for making his battle a little easier.

    Marc.........What to say except I'm really sorry.
    I am so glad that all of us here we were able to do and say something that gave your Dad joy in his final days here on God's earth. Makes a man feel right knowing he could have been a part of that.

    Try to keep strong through the difficult days ahead, and know that we'll be here for you when you get back.

    Jeff
