I feel horrible for your loss. Believe that his death was in the plans of the creator. I fully support the young men and women who have sacrificed so much. I can't say I agree with our president but I do believe in the soldiers. Please remain strong and god bless you and you family.

From one soldier to another.

Randy its really really hard to believe that you and SGT Murray and Lane are gone. You are a true hero and such a strong man. We love you so much you are the legend of Charlie Company. I'm so sorry that this happend. Know that we did everything we could. We love you and miss you. Rest in peace brother. My heart goes out to your family and we are praying for them and wish we could be there with them to tell them in person what a brave hero you are to us, and how much we love you and we are going to miss you. Your family raised an outstanding young man and you will never be forgotten.

I happened to be out in Schiller Park this afternoon (9/13/07) and was stopped at Irving Park Rd & River Road to allow the funeral procession to pass. Very moving.

My deepest sympathies to the family of this brave soul.

My heart goes out to you and your family, may god bless you all. My heart breaks every time I hear such sad news. My son is also in the service and two of his good friends, I worry all the time, but it hits home every time a young life is lost.
Your son is a true hero. May he rest in peace and you find some comfort with how many that care.
I just wish I can help take your pain away.
I am truley sorry for you loss.
My tears are many, I am so sorry...
