Bill and Carrie Darrah

Ellen . . . I am so very sorry for your loss. Mike & I met you & Randy while we were attending the Christian Church. My daughter, Becky, & I were in your bell choir. Mike knew Trey & Jennifer as well, but that was before he & I met, so I don't think I ever met them. I also knew Randy for over 20+ years while he was at the Police Department & I was at the Fire Department. He was a terrific police officer, and a wonderful man. Randy was one of those individuals that can never be replaced. He will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with you and your family as you mourn this tremendous loss. --- Mike & Diana Conner
