I dedicate this book to my grandparents and parents: my father, Andrew Hubbeling; my stepmother, Carol Hubbeling; and my mother, Rev. Lin Jennewein, who instilled in me the love of learning and education. I also dedicate it to my son, Kevin, who now carries the learning torch.

I dedicate this book to my late parents, Alice and Dale Johnson, who supported and encouraged me in all I have accomplished; my son, Louie, and my daughter, Alyce, who have made me proud to be a parent; my daughter in-law, Trish, and my son in-law, Fred, who have made our family complete; and last but not least to my grandsons, Gavin, Ethan, and Alex, who are my soul, my light, and my heart.
