From Gary Scott...

Being a close childhood friend of Randy in Eudora, I spent many days in their home. Maxine was a friend of my mom and I felt like she was an aunt to me. Memories included trips to swimmimg pool in Lawrence on 6th street and Gardner city lake. Went to KC Chiefs and A’s games. Sorry for your loss. Hold on to your memories.

From LaDonna (Kazmaier) Laing...

Many of my young years were spent across the street from this couple. When I was in high school I hitched a ride to Lawrence to work at Raney Drug Store. These were wonderful and kind people.
