I am truly going to miss you cousin. I fondly remember that day we talk about my going back to obtain my master's degree. You told me don't stop there continue on to get your doctorate. I told you not sure if I want to go for the doctorate and your encouraging words that followed but not before you gave me the look. Rest Randy, you have fought a good fight.

You had to be the greatest big brother ever! Although my heart aches, I will carry you in my spirit. Thanks for always being there for me and providing me with great memories. I will cherish our time together and happy we made the most of it. Thanks for being a great role model for Reggie, Jordan, and Jordan. I will stand with Quentin and Cheran just as stood by me. I will always be proud to call you my brother and friend!
Love always,

Cornelius Vance

Randy, you fought the good fight of faith and now you have earned your reward. We love you, but we know God loves you more. You always encouraged others to do & be the best they could be. As you encouraged others, God endowed you to achieve the goals he had put inside of you. Rest my Friend & Cousin, you have earned your reward.
