I forgot to mention one major player in my life!!! And for that I am extremely embarrassed and sorry.
Murphy: You have brightened my days, provided strength & laughter & acceptance & understanding….Without your unconditional friendship, I would not have made these last couple of years as unscathed as I am. You are truly an inspiration! I consider myself fortunate to have you as a friend and confidant. In truth, you are my soulmate. You have my undying love and friendship. Thank you!
