  • June Whitaker: How beautiful to read Todd's words of faith!! I want to cry for him but I know he is with Jesus and that he is waiting for Reba and all his friends (and neighbors) to join him. Instead of crying we should shout "Hallelujah"!!

  • Kathy Chaffin: Thank you for writing, Kristy. It is my privilege to write about a man with so much faith. I am a two-time cancer survivor and was deeply moved by Randy's desire to use his illness to lead others to Jesus Christ. I was also moved by the depth of love that his family had for him and the widespread respect that Randy had in this county and beyond.

  • Kristy Barrett Watlington: I'm so glad you are writing about Randy, he and his wife both are wonderful examples of faith. Their faith has led them thus far through this journey and it will hold Cindy up when she needs it most. Please continue to pray for them.
