If Mary came in a strong second, the person who came in first must be Mother Theresa! There's no other explanation. There is no finer a human being, no better an advocate for those with little or no voice, and no greater a friend than Mary. Atta Girl!

Hello Melinda, Mary is awesome! I have really gotten to see firsthand how wonderful and hardworking Mary is during the planning of the upcoming event... Lord Mayor Richie Gormley is a good guy, but Mother Theresa isn't the first person I would compare him to. David
