The following families, people, and organizations have been instrumental in helping me achieve a balanced personal worldview, a love of music, and a willingness to follow my calling even when it is difficult, embarrassing and / or theoretically impossible. I have chosen to name people in groups (through which I met them) rather than individually.

They are listed in no specific order, and I love them (you) all! 

and thank You for being Here!!

Thank you for being there!!
