Randy was born on April Fool's Day but he was certainly no fool. After all, he was my first neighborhood boyfriend in 6th grade... back in the day when bubble gum rings were cool. He gave me a dime and I thought he was rich. Back then a dime bought alot!!! We walked to school together and got in trouble talking. It was mostly hi and by during high school days. He was President of the La Crosse Jaycees and I would see him at his Floral Shop. I sent his family my sympathy when he passed and he will be remembered.
