Let the memory of Randy be with us forever
  • 39 years old
  • Born on January 29, 1974 .
  • Passed away on August 16, 2013 .
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Randy Aufieri, 39, born on January 29, 1974 and passed away on August 16, 2013. We will remember him forever. His quirky personality was one that constantly kept those close to him on their toes. He loved people and was a social butterfly. A free spirit who loved life, he wanted to see and experience everything he could. He always reminded us that life is short. Unfortunately, in his case he was right. He was taken late on a warm summer night in a motorcycle accident while on a ride around the lake. He will be missed everyday and will live on in the hearts of his wife, children, sister, mother and many other family and friends.

Thinking of you today on your 5th angelversary....
Posted by Jamie Aufieri Ogden on 16th August 2018
It has been five years today you left to be with the Lord. It seems so much longer than that. I miss you everyday and you know you are in my thoughts and prayers everyday too. No one know when your time to leave this earth is, but I still believe and trust in the Lord that He takes you when it is best for us and we all will see the reason when it is our time. I love you more every day son and I know you are proud of your sons as they are becoming wonderful men. I am doing my best to do as you would want me to. Your presence is deeply missed by all of us, your sister and family and your sons. MJ and I talk about you often and we miss you. Give our family with you a big hug and care for Cayson til we see you again. Loving you dearly...Mom

Happy 4 year angelversary Randy. I still hate the fact that each year that passes there are more things you have missed. I have accepted it was your time though. I hope you are enjoying heaven. Miss you!

Turns out I am one of the less fortunate, that gets to miss you for longer than I've had the chance to know you. I remember talking about your father and how he left so young, and how that affected you. Your skills at pool, your natural ability to lead people and to have people willfully follow you, your charisma, your origami art and your poems, most of all your intellect and depth. You were a rare gem, and the most important parts of you still shine as brilliant as ever and are carried on here in my memory and in so many others. You never will fully die. Even on Earth your soul still shines on. Miss you, friend.

Happy 43d birthday son. It still is hard to believe you have missed 4 birthdays with us. This day hold many wonderful memories for me...the day you were born and I was blessed with a son. It is also a day of remembering you the good times as a kid and the smiling young toddler that your sister adored. I wish we could move time back and redo things that could make life easier for us and bring those we love back. That happens in Gods time and plan when we will all be together again. Always know that I love you more then words can write and miss you every second of every day. You are in my thoughts and prayers. A candle is lit for you today and your are deeply loved and missed....

Happy Birthday Randy! I know you are in Heaven with Uncle Mike and one day I hope to see y'all again. I Love and miss You, Uncle Mike, Aunt Jamie, and Cousin Tracy very much! My heartfelt thoughts and prayers with you always...

Another year without you. In some ways it seems like it was yesterday and others it seems like so long ago. We still miss you so much. Things just aren't the same without you. Love you forever. I wish you were her. There are so many thing I want to tell you. I miss all of our holidays together and the bbqs and everything we all did together. We will always love you.

Happy 3 year angelversary Randy! We miss you~
Posted by Jamie Aufieri Ogden on 17th May 2016
Today it is gloomy, rainy outside and my thought are with you more than usual. I miss you Son so much. It doesn't seem real yet that it has been almost going on 3 years you have been with the Lord. Each day it is harder to deal with knowing that you are gone from our sight and presence. You would be proud, and I know you are, of your sons. They are becoming strong young men. Both miss you dearly too and even tho they dont say it, I feel their pain. You should be here! I trust in the Lord that He knows the reason why you had to be taken so young and I know we will all be together, our family, again. Please guide your sons, sister and me and help us thru times we have our lows. You left an empty spot in our hearts. I love you son, and I know you know just how much now. Forever, Mom

Another year older today. It occurs to me every year that you and dad never got this far in life and that makes me sad. Knowing I won't get that phone call I waited every year for is just a reminder that this is an unchangeable situation. Getting older doesn't make me sad....the things I miss do... Love ya Ran
Posted by Tracy Goldsberry on 31st December 2015
Another year is about to pass without you. It's so crazy but dealing with you being gone is like living with half of myself. It's funny how after you lose someone you realize how much you took for granted when they were there. I'm so sorry I listened to people and didn't come to you. I needed you but I didn't want to bother you and I know that hurt you. I love you Randy. I am trying so hard to be safe for our kids so I can be here for them for both of us. I even freak out in vehicles because I am afraid of what could happen. PTSD after you, my superhero brother died, maybe? But you'd laugh cause I drive everyone crazy lol!! Watch over them with dad and keep them safe and I promise in 2016 I will try harder and give our family a good happy life, even if I have to go crazy doing it lol. I can do this, Help me find a better place I need you and your craziness and your support. Fact is I just miss you so damn much! Love you little brother, please give our dad a big hug... Happy New Year....

Christmas three without you...it still sometimes seems unreal. So much has happened and changed since you went home to dad. I really think we are all doing better, not great but better. The void in our hearts that can only be filled by you are still very present but we are learning to live with it. Not a minute of the day goes by that you don't cross my mind. There are so many things you should be here for big and small. A song for you and dad...yes both of you its country lol sorry You Should Be Here by Cole Swindell

Christmas two without you...2014 Christmas Eve... The smiles of the amazing family I have helps hold back all the tears that are always just a blink away. When I moved my family back here JULY of 2013 i was so looking forward to being here and being with my brother and his family and my mom. I crossed the border into Oklahoma and my soul screamed with joy! Sadly this is another holiday I was looking forward to spending with them that, although happy because I'm so lucky to have great kids, is also bittersweet because through this last year we have lost so much. All the hopes and dreams I was so looking forward to are now just realizations that those who we love leave, whether by circumstance or choice. It's a lesson in life I will never get used to. We will enjoy today and tomorrow for you dad and Randy, we will continue to grow and get stronger together as a family and I know you are both right beside us all cheering us on. The people in my life, this family is unbreakable and share the truest form of love. I have complete faith in that. You all are my reason to keep on keeping on and the smile in my heart! I love you mom Jamie Aufieri Ogden I love you Sara Elizabeth Aufieri I love you Chris Sondag I love you Mike Sondag I love you Shylen Aufieri I love you Tommy Aufieri I love you Taylor Sondag I love you Neall I love you Sam Thank you for truly loving me, I'd be lost without you
Posted by Tracy Goldsberry on 24th December 2015
With a heavy heart for the second time in my life I enter the holidays clinging to every great memory I have. I know my dad and brother will be with us all but long for a knock at my door and a surprise Christmas visit. Somehow, sometimes my mind tricks me into thinking its possible for my brother to still show up tho I know its not. I know longer think my dad will... Maybe they will find a way to visit somehow. Love will carry us all through this...I am blessed, I have a great family and great friends. I am thankful for that. Miss you like crazy Dad and Randy...I need a time machine Christmas 1 without both you and dad 2013
Posted by Tracy Goldsberry on 9th December 2015
I was scrolling through all this and my only thought is Hey Ran do you see how loved you are!!! If you ever doubted it in this life you now know you were wrong to doubt it. Hind sight is 20/20 right?!
Posted by Tracy Goldsberry on 9th December 2015
Miss ya a lot Ran but yeah I'm starting to smile more! Missing you is hard. Thanks for leaving me with such great people to help keep me going! I'm so very thankful for our mom, kids, sis, Sam, my other brothers, family and friends, the job you sent me as my trump card, waking up every morning to this gorgeous sunrise and just life in general! If you were here it would be perfect but I'll take what I can get! Got a job to do here and people counting on me!! Couldn't do this without you by my side and dad having my back! Aufieri's never give up and fight fight fight! Just love you guys up there and everyone here, just felt like letting you all know wherever you may be!
Posted by Tracy Goldsberry on 19th November 2015
These are the hardest times...the times when we should be preparing to come see you all. The decades that the week before we came was all we looked forward to. Thanksgiving Christmas Spring Break Summer those four day weekends throughout the years when all we talked about and got excited about was being here with ALL of you...no turkey dinner, no Christmas gift topped our trips. Once the happiest most exciting times now come with a silent storm that makes me feel bipolar. I miss you Randy! Love you always

We were complicated people, you and I. We weren’t simple. Our minds were analytical and imaginative and we thought about everything. A lot. We ended up making every situation in our life about 100x more difficult than it had to be. We argued a lot. I fought with you at inopportune times, but my anger was fueled by my passion and emotions for you. I cared. I loved you. I loved all of you. I loved that I was the only one you showed certain parts of yourself to, you gave me all of you. I wiped your tears as you spoke about your family, there’s nothing in this world I loved more than holding your hand and whispering words of reassurance in your ear, because I knew you weren’t broken, you were just bent. And I loved all your edges, all your roughness. Your imperfections were perfect to me. I challenged you because I loved you. I confronted you a lot. I’m not the type of girl who nods and laughs and is always comfortable, I wasn't easy — as in, I didn't just "go with the flow.” But that’s because I craved more from you - I had opinions and big dreams for the future, I wanted the best for you. I never put up with not getting everything I deserved. I never let you get away with slacking on your talents or putting in effort towards our relationship because I knew what we had. And you were never left uninspired. There are many things I never thanked you for. I thought I couldn’t live without you, but my heart is finally starting to beat again. You broke my heart open and new light got in, you made me so desperate and out of control that I had to transform my life, and I did. I thought I would grow old with you, but sometimes, life has other plans. That doesn’t mean I ever stopped loving you. When someone touches your heart, they will infinitely be there. I had so much anger and pain, it was gnawing away at me, slowly destroying me. But then I realized that our love wasn’t the kind that results in the fusing of two lives into one, it was the kind of love that gave me new life, that taught me much more than a happily ever after ever could. And I don’t regret a second of it.

Today you have been hone 2 years. Today also Leah has been gone from her family. I am mising you son, I am still angry because this should not have taken place 2 years ago. I accept this because as a child of God, I believe the Lord gad his reason for taking both your lives that day. Yet I can still be angry. There isn't a minute you aren't on my mind, I don't miss you and feel the emptiness you, my son, left me with. I miss your smile, laugh, yelling, I miss YOU. There is no fu)in this spot with another son, as no one can fi) this hile. Nor can any one fill that spot in your sisters heart, nor your two sons,nieces and nephews ever. We had one chance at having that with you. I need to grieve soon as my heart is needing it. I am driving everyone away that I live because I am trying so hard not to hurt like this again so I am holding on so tight everyone is leaving me. I pray every night for thus ache to get beter, but it get worse every day. I know when all turmoil it over I can heal...I pray our family and sons will too. I love you and miss you. Hugs to our family in heaven and a hug to mitzu for me and scooter. Mom

We're there is great grief there is great love...I must love you a lot because sometimes it's hard to breath without you. Happy two years with dad in Heaven Randy. I have so much I want to share with you... It was always Tracy and Randy, now I struggle to feel whole without you...I miss and love you...
Posted by Denna Aufieri on 14th August 2015
Well honey, it's not officially the date of your angelversary but it is the DAY.....this day, Friday, two years ago. You were working at this time....and chatting with me during lunch. I would see you for the last time briefly around 6pm and you would never return back home to me. I still miss you everyday and thinking of you often. I will always miss your sweet smile. I still wish I had known our time was ending so we could have said Good Bye. There was so much left unsaid. I guess that is the worst part about this tragedy that took you away so suddenly. Thank you though for the wonderful years we shared while you were here. Those years and memories we created are irreplaceable and will stay with me forever.
Posted by Tracy Goldsberry on 21st June 2015
Happy Father's Day Dad and Randy. The two most influential men in my life, the two men I loved first... My heart aches for you both and I miss you so much! The day I join you I will be sad leaving the ones I love behind but I know I will smile seeing your smiles again. You are our angels and I thank you for looking out for all of us. And I thank God for letting you continue to guide us. Every breath I take is to breathe your memories into our new generations. I love you both, forever and always! Your memories with live on forever!

Thinking of you Randy....
Posted by Jamie Aufieri Ogden on 23rd April 2015
I am sitting in my chair with candi and molly next to me. Thinking as I do every day throughout the day, I miss you so. I look at your recliner I so vividly see you in and find myself talking to you and I feel answers in my spirit Like conversations we had. the days, years are moving so fast, and I know that time here on earth as humans is not but a second in heaven. My heart aches so son as I miss you so much. we had our disagreements thru the years, but I know we both know that it was out of love and concern we disagreed. I know you can maybe see all going on hete, but know that you are not stressed because God has shown you all will be okay, just as hear you tell me in our spirit talks. I would love to see on advance the outcomes, but I believe there is a reason for all. I shall keep my faith in God, pray, and I know I will be with you, your dad, and my family again . Always know how much I love you and will always talk yo you too. Forster loved and missdd......mom

I know I will be with u ou when it's my time and will be with all of you again . You are in our thoughts and prayers every day and I feel your presence around me. I love you son......

Thinking of you as I so often do.....miss seeing your smiling face! Please do me a favor and see if you can get an extra favor from God for our oldest son. He's stuck and needs some help that can only come from our awesome God. Maybe you could visit him too in his dreams and reassure him. Love you....D

Happy birthday Ran! Thank you for being a great little brother and my best friend! Thank you for all the times you were there for me in this life and the times you are there now that you're gone. Thank you for all the wonderful memories that make me smile here and there! We should have been able to celebrate together.... I miss you Randy and love you so much! Love Tracy

Happy birthday son. I wish you were here to give you a hug and say that in person. The months pass by, but your absence lingers every minute of every day. I miss you so much... This morning at 207 am I gave birth to my one and only so , you. I remember kissing you and seeing you the first time you came into this world, and the last time I kissed your forehead and saw you. i know you are near me and sometimes sense your presence. I just wish I could see you just one more time to say I love you so much and will see you again.
Posted by Denna Aufieri on 29th January 2015
You should have been turning 41 today. I'd like to wish you a happy birthday but there are no more of them. Miss you since you've been gone and not a day goes by that I don't think of you. I love you Randy. Love, D
Posted by Denna Aufieri on 21st January 2015
You've been gone a while now. Lots of new songs have come out since you passed. It's funny how so many can still remind me of you. Wish you were here to listen to the one I just heard yesterday that I can hear you sing to me if I close my eyes and just imagine. Five Finger Death Punch....M.I.N.E. End This Way.....as long as I live, you will always be loved and remembered. Pinky promise! Love, D

I miss you Ran...it's been a sad day
Posted by Tracy Goldsberry on 31st December 2014
Hey Randy. It's been a long crazy year!! So much has changed and so many things have happened. I just want our family to be happy again and I know in time we will be. Although there are days I wonder if it will ever happen I hold on to faith and the knowledge that this is a strong family. There are still days when I can Seperate myself from the fact that you're gone but it always comes back and sucker punches me right in the gut. Guess it's something I have to keep working through. I just wish I could sleep all night more often and rest enough to dream. I miss seeing you and hearing your voice, maybe if I could dream you'd be back for a little... I feel lost without you. i probably always will. Happy New Year my brother. Wish we could've had more time, I miss you so much! Give dad a hug and enjoy the fireworks from Heaven with him! Maybe you two should watch the ball drop

There are no words to write that can ever say how much I miss my son. Each day is a struggle, each minute i miss him more as each day goes by without him here. The holidays He loved as a child and we always looked forward to these. They were family times together..baking Christmas cookies, cooking, and enjoying our family and friends. i remember the last Christmas we all shared, our family get together, he was just as excited as his sons and nieces and nephews, receiving and opening his gifts. This is the second holiday season Randy is not here to share with his family but I do. know in my heart he will be with us. I wish he could come back just for a little visit each holiday season. I'd take a minute if possible. He is forever in my heart and he took a part of my heart with him that can never be filled again. Missing you more thru this holiday..... Til I see you again......mom

The holidays are upon us once again. The second set of them since you were taken. The seasons are definately changing. Subfreezing temps are on the way. Tommy and I went to the lake and put more flowers out in your memory as we do almost every week. You are always in my heart and I miss you so much. Praying for your family to have good holidays this year and be able to enjoy each other again. You will continue to be missed by all regardless. Love ~D

It has been almost 15 months since you were called home. I miss you every second of every day and you are forever in my heart and thoughts. I miss you so much son, but I know in my heart you are okay and happy...with the lord, your dad, and our family. I know your grandmother is taking good care of you too. I wish you could be here for just one minute more so I could hug you and tell you how much I love you and say see you soon son. You gave me the joy of being your mother and some sorrow at times, but that is part of being a parent. Thank you for blessing me with your sons. We will all watch over them and raise them to be the young men you knew they would become. Til I see you again..... Much love....mom
Posted by Jamie Aufieri Ogden on 12th October 2014
The months have gone so fast son. It seems still unreal at times that you are not here. I miss you so much son as do your sons and sister. I don't know why the lord took you, just as I didn't when he took your dad, but I know the Lord know all and He had to have reason why. There isn't a minute my heart doesn't miss you. I'd even take those calls you use to do anything to hear your voice again. No matter where I go or what I am doing, you are always close in heart and thought. I know I will see you again in a better place when the Lord calls me too. I just know it isn't my time, for he hs much for me to do yet. Til then my son......I love and miss you and I will do my best to guide your sons with your help. Mom
