Faith provides firm foundation after cancer diagnosis

Randy Wiessinger has witnessed a lot of difficult situations throughout his life. For 30 years, Randy served as a devoted member of law enforcement, as did his wife, Lorie.

Randy’s career was full of highs and lows, as he experienced several critical incidents and served as a volunteer member of the honor guard.
