To countless friends and relatives, I can't begin to name them all or to thank them all personally for all of their support and prayer. I feel that everyone has gone through this together with me, and John as well. To my immediate family, my sons and daughter-in-law who sacrificed tremendously beginning with my son John's accident in February, 2014 and continue to do so.
