Randy Foster of Cadiz, Mike and Michele Sliva of Cadiz, Terry and LouAnn Cornish of Adena, Amy and John Sebring of Adena, Jamie Vota and Rick Richetti of Mt. Pleasant. And also, John “Chicken Water” Stanko for all those trips to Landmark to keep Tracy in bird and deer feed so she could watch them from her bed.
