I want to extend my condolences to the Halbach family over the passing of Randy. Randy and I were friends back in grade school at St. Peter Claver. We spent time together doing what kids did, hanging out playing basketball, fishing in the summer months and pickup games of football with the neighbor kids. Not to mention chasing girls, which was mostly us chasing and the girls running away. We went on a weekend retreat together through the school to St. Lawrence Seminary. It was a lot of fun meeting all the other kids, and Randy being the great guitar player, got us in the talent show where we sang and he played. Randy was a good guy and I was happy to have a friend like him. God Bless Randy.

My sympathies to the Halbach family. I knew Randy in school at St. Pete's. Always loved hearing him play and sing (especially "knock 3 times on ceiling "! Our families got together occasionally. Anyway, lots more memories that I have so I'll just say "Good times may come and go but thank God memories do last forever ".

Tommy, Tim and all the Halbach clan, Sorry to see the loss of your brother. I didn't know him, but if he was a Halbach, then he had to be a good man. When i saw the picture in the Press I was hoping it wasn't your brother, but he looked like you guys and unfortunately it was. My deepest sympathies to all.. Take care of each other and as always keep the faith.. Spears
