This time is a tough one for any family and while your grieving you also have to arrange a lot of things. Casey Bowmen has set up a donate button where you can help with the costs of Randy’s cremation. This is simply a donation and anything is appreciated.
Casey and friends are helping his family pay for cremation, there is no funeral. Randy is native american and its against his people’s traditions to have open caskets and people to take pictures, so his Mom decided to do cremation for those purposes.
The only official memorial going on is at the local skate park “Alliance” in Grand Prarie, TX this Saturday from 1pm-3pm.
Another thing we will put extra money donated towards, is some sort of statue, headstone, plaque, plot etc. That way people have something tangible they can physically visit to pay respects. Randy always wanted people to remember him after he was gone and didn’t want to be just another person who gets talked about 1 week and forgotten the next, so thats why we want something for people to see and touch and leave flowers and such at. We are also trying to get some embossed rubber band bracelets as well, but they probably won’t be available until next week some time.
Also this is the link to the facebook event page for Saturday.
We would also like to thank everyone who have posted positive things towards Randy, his family, and us (his close friends). But as Gaz said on ESPN “We are beyond devastated, I have no idea how to deal with this. All I ask is that you remember Randy for all his awesome riding. Just let us, his close friends and family grieve in our own time,”
I would like to thank all of you so much for your support, it really means a lot for us.
