Much love and gratitude are extended to my daughters, Marissa and Rebecca, for their invaluable assistance at vari- ous stages during the development of the book. My parents, John and Betty Ann Manes, deserve a world of thanks for undergirding me since childhood with unconditional love and a sense of faith and purpose. And I am thankful to my God, who has led, is leading, and will lead me one step at a time, lovingly guiding me through whatever comes my way. COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL
