ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

This book was written during a time of great emotional turmoil for my family and me. My father passed away at the age of eighty-six after a relatively brief illness.One week after his funeral, our son Michael was married to Sandra Falteau, and within seven days, my wife, Chris, and I experienced both life's great sadness and a parent's joy.Six weeks later, Chris's father passed away, finally succumbing to a long bout with cancer.Through it all, our youngest son, Patrick, was like a rock and helped everyone in the family to deal with the cascade of events and the ebb and flow of emotions.He demonstrated a maturity far beyond his twelve years. Since that time, our daughter, Shari, and her husband, Eddie, have announced that our first grandchild is on the way, and with great excitement we await that new life.The circle of life continues: as members of the family depart, new life begins in the eternal experience of continuation.

Also during this time, Perseus editor Nick Philipson and his wife, Ruth, celebrated the birth of their first child, Rachel Grace, and Nick tells us that she is the most beautiful of God's creations. Mickey Beatty, who has assisted in the development of this book, as she did with my three previous publications, celebrated the wedding of her son, Sean, to Beth Lamborn, and learned that she and her husband, Mike, will soon be welcoming their second grandchild.This manuscript was created during a tumultuous time, one that included great joy.

Chris was very helpful in the writing of this book.She is evolving into a true coauthor. And her editing efforts were invaluable. I owe great thanks to her and our son, Patrick, for their patience and support during this project.

Once again, Mickey Beatty worked her magic, and I continue to be amazed at her ability to transform my chaotic thoughts into a coherent manuscript. She plays a very big role in our overall business, and I can't imagine writing books without her help.

My gratitude goes to Nick Philipson of Perseus Books for the opportunity to continue writing and I am thankful for all his help.I truly appreciate his un
