    My grandfather was a miner and I saw him through the hard times of coal mining, he past on after years of breathing coal dust, my heart goes out not only to our friend Randal and his family but also to those that never reached old age. Truely a class of guys whose trust in one another and friendship is rarely seen in this world anymore, get well soon Randal. My card is on its way, ZS1RJQ.

    Like many other HAMS we will be sending a donation to  Randall and his family. Besides donations from HAMS alike , we at Northside Radio Supply, are issuing a challenge to ALL advertisers on QRZ and Ham radio suppliers. Lets help a ham along with his family and fellow miners families that are in need by donating 10% of December or January total sales.
    May God bless Randall and his family along with the grieving community that was part of this tragic event.


                       73s and God Bless all,

    I find it odd the news media seems to be avoiding or ignoring outside support such as this QSL-card-and-donation campaign. An internet search reveals no such news items.
    As any of us who have lived through injury or death in the family knows, money is much more useful than cards and flowers. Even very small contributions can add up to a lot of relief for the family.
