I suppose a number of the fine folks here have missed seeing Top Droog on the site much lately. Droogie is by far one of the finest and most generous brothers on the site and in life in general. It is with an already broken heart and all the sorrow I can muster that I must announce announce that Randy lost his wife and unborn child yesterday afternoon. Below is an excerpt of the email I recieved from Randy:

You know Skip, I was planning on calling or writing you sometime soon to express my condolences for your loss, and provide encouragement in any way I could. I guess I was trying to give it some time for the edge on the pain to dull a bit.

Does it? I need to know, brother. My wife passed away at about 1:00 p.m. yesterday. It was so sudden and unexpected. I told you during our last conversation that we had just learned we were expecting a baby. The pregnancy was high-risk throughout, we knew that, and were taking every precaution and following all instructions. I never knew she was also at risk. We won't know exactly what happened until the autopsy is complete, but as she had a condition that increases the risk of blood clotting, which is elevated during pregnancy, so the best guess at this time is that's what happened. And, being only halfway through the pregnancy, there was nothing they could do for the baby.
-------------------------------------------------------
Randy asked me to let you all know what happened. Please join me in sending prayers, vibes, zen and any form of strength you can send our good brother and his family. I know how his heart is breaking and the overwhelming feeling of helplessness. Send Droogie your encouragement, strength and love. Hang on tight Droogie,God Bless you Randy and God Bless your family.

Oh, man. How terrible. Droog is one of my favorite reads. And, though I haven't met him, seems like a really nice dude.

Hoping and praying he has the strength to endure.

Hoping all is as well as it can be for you too, Skip.

My God, this is so terrible.

I had gotten a PM from him a little over a week ago. He was saying she was going to have a baby. I was so happy for them. I can't believe this has happened. It breaks my heart.

I'm so sorry my Dear Brother Randy, my heart hurts for you and your family.

NoNoNoNoNo!!! I'm one who has been missing Droogie a lot but knew he was tending to family matters(which just shows his priorities are straight). Randy is one of the finest folks I've met here - always kind and thoughtful and generous in his posts and it's heartbreaking to hear this news and know he has had such terrible tragedy and sorrow enter his liife ... I can only imagine his pain.

Droogie - many, many loving and comforting thoughts are coming your way to hopefully buffer some of the pain you are feeling and with these are wishes for strength in the days and years ahead. Wear this love like a blanket and let it bring you warmth and know that you have hands and shoulders out here for holding you up and supporting you should you need it and ears (or eyes) for listening. Prayers are with you and your entire family as you face this loss of your beloved wife and baby. They sleep with angels now.

This is heartbreaking ... I am so sorry, Randy.

I am sick.
Man, we had such a good time in NY in '07.....Droogie has sent me music, DTB.
Why does this happen to quality people?

To anyone on this site that I have ever jumped, insulted, criticized....please accept my humble apology. I'm sure it was over something trivial, dippy.

This is reality. Real life. There are no words.....

Oh my God!!! That is just horrible news! Life is not fair for something like this to happen to such a wonderful and generous person. I am at a loss for words as Randy has become one of my favorite people here. I am sending all of the prayers and healing vibes I can conjure up to Randy and his entire family. I am so sorry for your loss Randy.
