    No words can ever express the sorrow we feel for the Lacy family. We have known Big Randy for many years and he was like family to us. Our community has truly lost the best. Not only was he the most caring and giving person we have ever known, he was our friend. Big Randy will be greatly missed, but he will remain in our thoughts and in our hearts. May God be with each of the Lacy family members during their time of grief.

    This is really sad, but it is no sadder when any one's life is taken due to murder or through an accident. We all have the same value in the eyes of God, and I cannot understand why so many tax dollars were spent to attend his visitation and funeral. Do you have any idea how much money was spent for the fuel and the wear and tear on the vehicles? We are not even calculating the time off these officers and state employees took from their jobs. A police officer of any type makes a choice to become a law officer and they are not missed any more than my husband or son would be missed by their families.

    person responsible for the crime should be dragged through town,tied and be eaten alive by hogs.This would deter this in the future,or this could happen again.

    we have lost a great man plus a good cop it is a shame that a man that should have been locked up a long time ago for being a habitual offender now weve lost a good because our court system has failed us.

    I know the grief the Lacy family is going through with the death of "Big Randy". The drug situation in Powell County is terrible and until Unite or someone comes in and puts a stop to all of the drugs there will be more innocent lives taken. I hate the drug situation here and it definitely needs to be stopped. This is a wake up call for more serious actions to be taken against the ones selling the drugs and the ones buying the drugs. Put a stop to all of this! I lost my own son because of drugs and have come close several times losing my daughter. I have two grandchildren, one I don't get to see because of the drugs that have been in my family and I have a granddaughter that I do see every day, and I hate to think of what the future for them will be if the drugs are not stopped. My heart goes out for all the Lacy family and to other families that have lost a loved one to drugs. We all need to come together and put a stop to them as soon as possible.
