I would like to offer my sincere condolences. May your hearts find comfort in God's Word where it states: "He will swallow up death forever, and the Lord will wipe the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25:8) May your loved one awaken to a world where there will be peace, no sickness (Isaiah 33:24), and no more troubles (Revelation 21:4) throughout eternity (Psalm 37:29). May your hearts find comfort in the the wonderful hope found in the Bible, your family, friends and good memories at this time. My deepest sympathy to you.
My family and I would like to express our deepest sympathy over the loss of Randy.
May you find comfort in your loving memories and the warmth of family and friends. A scripture that has uplifted me during times such as this is found at Revelation 21:4. There it describes a time when death and pain will be gone forever after God restores his original purpose for the earth. We will even see our loved ones again who we have lost in death (John 5:28 & 29). It is our hope that these words bring you a measure of comfort during this difficult time as well. Once again, please accept our condolences as you deal with your loss.
My heart goes out for the Graff's family. I only had the pleasure of meeting Randy once in Las Vegas, he was a kind and caring person. He will be sadly missed by my good friend Elda West and Roger Graff. Please except my deepest condolences as you deal with your lost..
Rest in Paradise Randy. We lived across the street from Randy when he lived in Rapid Valley. I wish we could have connected back up with him. He will never be forgotten. Many thoughts and prayers to the Graff family.
