Randy Smith (Dad) was so many things to all of us, a loving Husband, Father, Grandfather, Uncle, Brother, Son, Nephew, Friend and Hero.  Randy was unable to attain life insurance due to his ongoing health issues. The cancer came on so quickly and his family was unprepared for losing him at the early age of 58. On March 13, 2014, he let go and lost the battle going home to be with the Lord.

Tragically 2 days later his loving daughter Sara was taken from us in a fatal car accident that also took the lives of 3 others and placed another in the hospital in critical care.  Sara was a beautiful free spririt and the life of our family. She was two months shy of graduation from WSU as a Dental Hygienist. Sara was such a loving wonderful person, she would do anything for anyone, and was the glue of the family during tough times. Sara was responsible, self-motivated, determined, and always made time for her family. Her life was one of kindness, humor, and fun. Sara will be remembered for a smile that could light up a room, and infectious personality that brightened even the darkest of days.

Randy and Sara's positive influence will always be remembered and shall never be forgotten. Our shared memories will live through our family while keeping their memories alive forever. We would like to make this loss even less painful for this family. n lieu of flowers any donation you can give is greatly appreciated.

I was saddened to hear about Randy and then Sara. While I havn't seen Randy for many years he was my favorite cousin. He was smart, funny and a good guy.
