Did anyone in Hamilton not know and love Randy? Few people are blessed with such generosity of spirit, such warmth of personality, such mischievous delight in 'afflicting the comfortable and comforting the afflicted', such a rich pedigree of creative outpouring in so many media, such an upbeat outlook on life, or such a lovely, loving family and community - never mind all of them in spades! Could it be any different? It's no wonder he was surrounded by such wonderful people, you couldn't be around Randy and not be charmed and disarmed by his impish personality or moved by his works. That the cancer should snatch away his voice before taking his life was a cruel cut, but even that couldn't silence him - he just moved another passion, his sharp, incisive photography, toward the front. We are all both richer for having known him and poorer for having lost him so soon. My heart breaks for his beautiful family, for they know and feel most keenly what he meant.
