To my son, Michael, whose smile and baby jibber jabber would crack me up each time he looked at me. Thanks son, I love you.
To my gorgeous daughter, Sophia, who has proved that a quick batting of her eyes can win over this old man in almost any situation. I love you.
To my beautiful and caring wife, Ginamarie, who survived three brutal winters in Minneapolis so I could experience living in a place I always wanted. Thank you for giving me two gorgeous children and for being so very patient and supportive of my insane workload over the last year. I love you. Time for some vacations! Let's go!
Last, but certainly not least … to Dad. Thank you for reconnecting and letting the truth be known. It means more to me than you will ever know. I love you.
