  1. I worked with Randy at the KTSC Auction, one memory that I have is when I first started to work for the auction I was afraid to step into her “Playground” (the warehouse). But after some coaxing she let me in and we became great friends! She loved the auction, her friends and family. I will forever remember Randy as a spirited, caring and loving woman. I will miss you.

  2. I worked with Randy in the warehouse at the KTSC auction. She was so great and full of life. She enjoyed working the auction so much and she made others want to work too. She will be greatly missed.

  3. Please accept our sincere sympathy for the loss of such a caring and giving lady. Keeping you in our prayers.
