    Randy has been my best friend for years and was the guy that got me started making the 50 BMG bottle openers. He has been getting radiation and chemo treatments for cancer lately and Monday he was suppose to have 7 hours of chemo after the radiation. In stead he ended up in the hospital because he couldn't get enough oxygen and his pulse oxygen was way to low. Yesterday they put him in the ICU on a ventilator. I just got a text from his wife Linda that Randy put his DNR in effect this morning. I just witnessed it last week and never thought it would come to this so quickly. I've been trying to help Randy understand God's gift of Grace for quite some time without being to obnoxious. Perhaps I should have pushed harder because I'm afraid I'm going to lose my best friend and not see him again. I just lost my Father 6 months ago and I'm typing this with tears in my eyes. I've enjoyed Randy's friendship for quite a while and I don't want to lose him. I know I don't post a lot here as I've been pretty busy down here in Oklahoma but I know Randy thinks a lot about this site and many of you have become good friends of his. Pray for him please.

    I noticed that he always had extremely fair prices for items he sold here, even when others were asking astronomical prices for the same.

    Prayers on the way for Randy and his family!

    Randy has always been a stand up guy in my eyes and if he did not have it for sale he knew where to get one:thumbup:
