  9. My first memory of Maury was him telling us we will never eat or drink in one of the funeral home vehicles. He was a sweet funny and kind hearted man who loved life, his family and his faith. Rest in peace dear friend.

  10. Will always remember the best neighbors ever-Maury and Marilyn. It was like having an older brother and sister living next door-they were always ready to help with anything and everything. Rest In Peace🙏

  11. With our sincerest condolences to you Jolynn, as well as to your entire family. May Maurice rest in peace along with Marilyn.

  12. Dear Randall clan, Linda Anderson let me know of Maurie’s death; you are all in my prayers at this time. My favorite memories of him revolve around Toby, the dog who shared the parsonage with me when I served the New Hampton and Ionia churches. Toby and he were buddies, and he would often bring a pig ear or two and leave the bag between the storm door and the entry door. (One of the cashiers at the farm store would use ANYTHING not to touch the ears as she put them in the bag.) I wouldn’t always know that Maurie had been there, but Toby would: she would paw at the inside door until I was annoyed enough to see had her attention. I’d get a “see? I knew what I was doing” look as she chomped contentedly. When Maurice would roughhouse with her, Marilyn would scold him–never the dog. She knew who was starting things. Both of them will always hold special places in my heart, as will you as you figure out your lives without their presence. Blessings – Carol Krause-Nealis

  13. To Julie, Jolynn, and Dean. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. Uncle Maurice will be dearly missed.
