Such an amazing person. I know his message will live on through all who were touched by him.

Jasmine,

It’s incredible how many people have been touched by his message. He did such an amazing job of capturing the essence of his message with his book, the YouTube videos, the videotaped Congressional testimony, the interviews, etc. I firmly believe his lesson will live on through the large number of people he touched with his wisdom, caring, compassion, priorities, and grace.

J,

As you know, Randy has had a huge influence on my life. It’s ironic as I sit here writing a blog post on parenting with a chronic illness that you had posted on Randy. Randy’s legacy that he left for his children is one that glows as bright as the sun and will never dim. The guy was, in a word, incredible. I only wish that I had had a chance to march up to him in real life to let him know how much I admire, respect and cherish his masterpiece of a lecture. I’m tearing up just thinking about it now!

Alicia,

I just thought it was important to acknowledge the anniversary of his death. He helped so many people. His lessons will live on. My thoughts are with his family.

Loved, loved, loved that story-I watched the entire video after seeing him on Oprah one day. I also read the book. Heartbreaking really and I cried my eyes out the day he died. He most certainly “got it,” in understanding what the purpose of life was. We should all be so evolved to that point.

I learned a lot from that man and it is a darn shame his children will not grow up with him at their sides. So sad but also so inspirational!
Thanks for posting that!
Take care,
Jeannette

P.S. Been really worried about you! Please DM me at twitter and let me know how you are doing and what happened at the appointment.
Take care sweetie-you are in my thoughts and prayers!

Jeannette,

His powerful story has helped so many people. He really was a remarkable man. Yes, it is sad. It is wonderful that he found such a beautiful way of reaching out to them, though, with his speech, his writings, his interviews, and his advocacy work. They will have an outstanding role model to follow even though they, sadly, won’t have him by their sides.

Take care,

Jeanne

P.S. I just sent you a direct message. Thank you. You’re in my thoughts and prayers too!
