My six children - Jocelyn, Jeffrey, Jillian, Julia, Judith, and Jenelle - my true report, eager supporters, and probably why life was created.
My wife, Joanne - love of my life, lover of children, lovely person, bastion of pro-life causes, and my constant compadre and companion.
Dan Baker - a good friend, theologian, fellow (and way better) introvert, homeless Catholic visionary, newly minted professor, and diviner of errors.
Steve Hall - a new, everlasting friend, fellow homeless Catholic, extraordinary minister, exceptional homilist, and clarifier of statements.
Norman McGraw - long life brother from a different mother, urgent inspiration to finish the book, musician, and dearest family friend.
Pete Michelin - loving friend, Bronco buddy, early reviewer, kind critic, mystical Christian, and remarkably eager befriender of the pained.
Deacon Chuck Specht - my oldest favorite retired living deacon, successful online hermit, faithful faith-filled family man, and original provocateur to write "I thought you already finished" this book.
