Jill Diane Randolph (1968—1995)

It's hard to believe that my friend, Jill, died in the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bombing in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, 17 years ago today.  She was in a Federal Employees Credit Union meeting when the truck was triggered.  Jill was the 101st person recovered from the blast site.

Truth be told, I had a college crush on Jill as we attended Shartel Church of God
but she was out of my league.  When I heard the news I wanted to travel across the country to the crumbling building in Oklahoma City and pitch brick after brick as I frantically searched for her.  Those were horrific days.

The greatest thing I can say about Jill is that she was a born-again Christian.  She is with the Lord Jesus.
