    My thoughts and prayers 🙏 are with the entire Koeller family. We never know why the dear Lord takes such great people at a young age. I’m so so sorry for your loss. I didn’t know Randy but I’m sure he was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. He is with the other angels looking down on you during this very difficult time. Randy is now with my angel, Nick… Donnie, Vickey and Hanna Bledsoe
