This booklet is dedicated to my family unit. Herb, Sam and Charlie…thank you for your inspiration, involvement and unwavering support of this project. Also dedicated to my parents Charles and Yvonne England who have never ceased to provide unconditional love and support to their children and grandchildren. Foremost to God… who strengthens me.
May each of you find your core support.
To Michael and Mindy Clayton for their combined talent. Together they produced more than just the artwork, graphics and layout on these pages, they also put their combined hearts into the entire Coping to Excelling project.
To Alex Mongiello who recorded unknown hours worth of interviews with High Def precision and Dean Schanbaum whose editing marathon kept Coping to Excelling on the path to the positive conclusion.
Also to my sister, Sharon Kaiser, who ‘burnt the midnight oil’ in an effort to keep the words and grammar at it’s very best!
