    Sweet, fun Rance. He lived a full life and quite the sense of humor. I remember him saying that when he passed someday, he wanted a party, he said; “That’s why they put the word fun in funeral!” That was a good one, Rance. He was clever & witty, too.
    Rest in Peace with God in Heaven, dear Rance, and Angela & i send our love & prayers to Norraine, Mike, Carla & family. Much Love

    I just found out about Rance. Please accept my deepest sympathy. I hadn’t seen him for a few years but will always have fond memories of him. He had a good heart and he was my friend.
