Their beautiful relationship quickly evolved from a professional one to a romantic one, although they did not officially tie the knot, both of them were happy to be with each other.

The sad cause of Randall's death ALS or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, is a progressive neurological disorder that affects the brain and spinal cord nerve cells. Unfortunately, there is currently no cure for this debilitating condition however efforts are being put in place to foster ALS awareness and treatment.

As ALS progresses the motor neurons of the patient deteriorates and expire, they cease to transmit signals to the muscles, resulting in the weakening of muscles, involuntary twitching, and muscle wasting. Eventually, the brain is not able to initiate or manage voluntary actions. As voluntary movement is adversely impacted over time, patients of ALS may find it increasingly difficult to communicate verbally, eat, move around, or breathe.

According to the Randall family statement, "Bryan chose early to keep his journey with ALS private and those of us who cared for him did our best to honor his request."

His family added, "We are immensely grateful to the tireless doctors who navigated the landscape of this illness with us and to the astounding nurses who became our roommates, often sacrificing their own families to be with ours. At this time we ask for privacy to grieve and to come to terms with the impossibility of saying goodbye to Bryan."
