Grateful Acknowledgements


William and Caroline Love

My father and mother, who gave me a "sense of family"
and a "high value of education".   Neither graduated
from High School but raised nine children and instilled
in them the value of life-long learning and hard work.
They are my "heroes" even without awards or degrees.

My Wife

My wife and life-long companion, who I have shared
many joys, sorrows, aspirations, and dreams. Whose
advice I have constantly sought and have valued.
We will
always be together here and here after...

My Daughter

My daughter and trusted colleague, who I have had
the privilege of sharing and collaborating many
  teaching and learning endeavors. Who put up with a
father wanting his daughter to be "an independent woman".
