To Audra, a beautiful wife I don’t deserve. Thanks for always pushing me off the ledge through the years before I had time to change my mind.

To my late sister Denise: Sometimes I still hear your infectious laughter somewhere between the semi-lucid end of a dream and consciousness.

To the Paul family. For being the Paul family.

To my late mother, and my loving mentor and advisor, my dear Aunt Sharon.
