    I want to win these for my mother who has been through so much in the last 8 years. She was diagnosed with M.S. and my Dad left her after 33 years of marriage then my brother lost his children to the state and she took on the responsibility of raising 2 more of her grandchildren after she already raised her 6 kids and 3 grandchildren and now she has 2 more to raise. She is the strongest most deserving person I know.

    The world is a much darker and sadder place because of the loss of so good a man as Randy Rummage. May GOD grant the Rummage Family Peace and Grace through this terrible ordeal.
