AUTHOR’S NOTE: These stories have been collected over
the years from the influence of a variety of places and sources
throughout my life. It is impossible to credit every person who
has inspired me, or whose material and thoughts inspired me
without an acknowledgment. My thanks to those who have assisted
me in generating a few of these ideas and stories.
I honor my wife, Rosemarie, and our three daughters,
Cathy, Noelle, and Emily.
Without their love and commitment I probably
would not be here to publish this book.
