Nunnally -- In Loving Memory of Randolph Sherman Nunnally May 19, 1931 - March 25, 2001Dad, We can't believe that a year has passed - we miss you so much. When you first left,we thought it was only temporary, like one of the many long trips that you enjoyed so much. We all waited for your return, just a phone call or to see your face one more time. When you did not return, there was a huge emptiness in our hearts. We miss your strength, your wisdom, your love. Even though you are gone, you are remembered as we gaze at the beautiful sunsets that you cherished so much. Each day brings your light and love into our lives. We miss you. Your Loving Family
