To Alex, Boo, Robin & Family So sorry, to hear the sad news of Randy’s passing. But be assured, I have been praying for you and your family at this difficult time. May God Bless You all! Pansy

Sad to hear about Randy’s passing.
My time with Randy and Robin goes way back to our days and nights at the Holiday Lanes playing pool and listening to Elton John on the juke box.
Most of what I know about the game of pool came from talking with them and watching the boys play pool and snooker, although it cost me a couple of bucks along the way! Lol.
Randy had a kind heart and big smile and always treated us with respect.
R.I.P. Randy.
if God needs someone to “clear the table”, then he got his man!

Alex, Robin and famalies,
Please accept my condolences with the passing of Randy. Hang on to all the wonderful memories you have of him to let you reflect of all the good times you had as you go through the difficult days ahead. God Bless!

Alex & family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of grief.

Robin & family,
So very sorry to hear of Randy’s passing. Our school years seem so long ago, until a time like this when I remember us all as kids and feel good that we were classmates and friends. Randy was one of the good guys. My thoughts are with you in your time of grief. Take care.

To the Furlong Families,
Shocked and saddened to read of Randy’s passing on Tuesday. Many years ago (48!!), I had the privilege of having both Randy and Robin in my Gr. 7 Homeroom at MQP. But Robin, you guys were always close to my heart, even if you didn’t know it, even after all these years. ….Always lots of laughter and fun when you were around! (And we teachers couldn’t let on sometimes how much we enjoyed it all …..lest you’d go a bit too far…) So many times over the years you would both come to mind, and a smile would come to my face and my heart.
Know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers at this very difficult time.
Sincerely, with Love and the Greatest Sympathy,
Anne-Marie O’Leary- Barry
