To the woman who knew me back when this journey began, and is still there, the love of my life, Merridith

In memoriam—Don Pearson

During the course of writing this book our field lost one of its most well-loved and respected pioneers, Don Pearson a.k.a. Dr Don. Mentioned several times by name throughout this book, I had the good fortune to know Don, to work with Don and to receive his wisdom. He was there when it all began and he will be missed. We were lucky to have obtained his “perspectives” before he died. They appear in this text and will continue to guide us.
