Randy lost his battle with brain cancer this morning. He has been asleep for 26 hours. I noticed a tear under his left eye and then he took his last breath. There's no more suffering and pain. He mentioned a couple of weeks ago that he wished he could smile again (the tumor took away that ability.)

We are looking to have his memorial service in about 10 days, but I will post here and on Randy's community facebook page when it will be.  www.facebook.com/messagesforrandysasoshaw this is his Facebook page. We would love to have the WaFish community attend if you would like.

We are thankful for what the WAFish community did for him by taking him on his fishing adventure. He talked about that day many times. Thank you for being a part of his life. WaFish.com is an amazing community of wonderful, caring people.

Randy fought a long battle with brain cancer like a warrior, and always maintained a positive outlook. His strongest trait was staying upbeat, even during the greatest trials of his life. He never let anything stand in his way from achieving his goals, including earning his high school diploma during his battle. Randy participated in the Seattle Brain Cancer Walk annually. His motto was “la vita e’ bella,” life is beautiful. Randy succumbed to his illness on August 13, 2013. He touched the hearts and lives of many. He was a beacon of light and brought joy and laughter to all.

My condolences.  Josh is correct...  good on you for not only helping Randy through his fight, but for also bringing awareness to the effects of cancer.

I am so sorry to hear that he is gone but relieved to know he is no longer suffering. Joanne, he was lucky to have you by his side during this entire ordeal.
