  27. My deepest sympathy to the Pinkley family. Randy was such a wonderful, kind and sincere person. I still see in my mind the first time I met him when Mr. McClard had me hand out sheet music in band practice on my first day of high school and the big smile on his face. I have the fondest memories of time I spent with the Pinkley family during high school. Water ski trips to Mine La Motte, church activities and vacations. I am so certain he has made a wonderful husband, father and servant to God. My prayers are with you all at a very difficult time.

  28. I was fortunate enough to be in the same class with Randy. God must have needed an all around good guy. Randy never had anything but good for other people.

I am going to miss him and his smiling face and daily friendly wave! Please let us know how we can help.

  59. Beverly, I loved the pictures on the video, they were beautiful.

We both happened to be in town visiting family at the same time. It seemed the only difference that occured over the years was Jay was bigger than either of us!

The comfort I take is the blessing in my life of having known Randy and his family both as friends and members of the church family.
