Cindy Blythe told reporters:
“It was really good to see him.”I miss him very much and I really hope I get to see him soon, and that we’ll be together again soon. So this was a special day, getting to see him. I think it’s terrible what happened — that the kid lost his life and his family lost him — but I believe [Randy] is innocent. That’s what I believe.”
