Jennifer - I was very sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. My memory isn't great, but I do have some very vivid memories of sleep-overs at your house and they were never dull!! I think of you often and would love to reconnect with you sometime. Let me know where you are these days and what you are up to. (email@example.com)

Jack and I are so sorry to hear about Randy's passing. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Dick, thank you so much for keeping us informed of Randy.He and Jack visited on the phone occasionally, since we weren't able to get together. Reliving their young experiences over again. Laughing and thinking that the time has gone way too fast for us to suddenly be considered the older generation. Hope you all are well. We are glad for the memories! Jack and Merry Newton

Velma and family, our condolances at this time. Randy was such an intellegent fella that did a lot in his lifetime for this community. He raised 3 beautiful children - spent countless hours helping others when they needed help and dearly loved getting out on the tractor with his floppy brimmed hat. The Strand's were one of the 1st families we came to know very well when we moved to Clarinda in 1976. Randy's wise words of wisdom sure helped us with our personal and business life years ago. Peace to you all.
