Hi there friends, my name is Wendy.  I'm not the important one here, though.

This morning the gaming world lost one of our own...  and a lovely lady lost her beloved husband, and some young men lost their father.

Randall Walker (AKA Randy, DeadOrcs, iDad, and RAMDU) passed away this morning after a short illness.  Randy was the kind of person who always had time and an ear for everyone, loved role playing games and the community surrounding them, and in general was One Awesome Dude.  He never hesitated to lift up those who needed it, and now it's time for us to return the favor and the love.

Randy leaves behind Anna and their sons.  They had just bought a house after renting one for years, and were so happy and excited to begin this new chapter in their lives...  only to have Randy's health decline just as they were signing the papers and moving in.   Anna was a real trooper and managed to get everything moved from the previous place to the new one while juggling a job and spending overnights in the hospital with Randy when he was sick.   She, like Randy, is an amazing person full of love for her friends and has always been there whenever anyone needed a sympathetic ear or a shoulder to cry on.

I'm asking Randy and Anna's friends (and the gaming community in general) to chip in a little to help defray the funeral expenses, whatever medical costs that have to be dealt with still, and to help Anna out with some money towards mortgage payments.  I can't imagine facing so many burdens at once, and with many of us being so far away from them, it's at least something we can do to help.

Please, give what you can, and if you can't afford anything, please help spread the word.  Let's roll a 20 for Randy and Anna.

Thank you all so very much for loving our family with your words and your gifts. I am humbled by the stories of how many of you were touched by Randy's amazingly welcoming spirit. He lives on in each of you as you remember him in story, as you roll the dice, and when you need to crush the monsters in game, and in life. RAMDU Abides.-Initiative or What! Much love, Anna, Nick, Zack, and Ian
