    Dear Marty, Marc, Chuck, and Shelley,
    My heart is breaking to say goodbye to dear Randee. Marty and Randee were always the epitome of the devoted couple. As Randee’s college roommate, I was witness to the love from the beginning in 1968. Randee was smitten with Marty from day one! She told me, ‘I am going to marry that guy!’ I have beautiful memories of sharing in your wedding, playing scrabble while Marc and Chuck napped, and holding dear a lifelong friendship. The world was made better the day Randee was born and her passing leaves a large void. Our hearts goes out to you and all the family. May beautiful memories, family and friends bring you comfort and strength during this time of mourning and beyond. With Love, Linda (Rich and Sydney)

    Could anyone be sweeter than Randee! She shared her wisdom and kindness, her smile and sense of humor, her class and style with everyone. She was quick to see the good in people, she would speak up when something needed to be said, and she always knew just what to say and how to say it best. She made things fun and special. She shared so much with me that I will never forget, and things that help me face the world with courage and kindness. I think of her everyday, and always will. May all your memories give you comfort and keep your family close. Love to you all❤❤❤ Alana

    Dear Marty and Family,

    Dick and I were so sorry to hear about Randee’s passing. We know how sick she had been. I have such fond memories of living near you in Glendale and Randee and I both lived in Allen Hall when we got engaged and married in 1968, I know she was very artistic and lived an active and full life. May her memory be a blessing.
