In loving memory of S.A.D.--To Mom and Shirley, two very special women who made an impact in my life. I will love you forever.
To Dad and Donna--Thank you for your loving support.
To my best friend, Satish--Thank you for believing in me and boosting my confidence just when I need it most. You have been a genuine friend and someone I know I can trust and always count on.
To Francessca,my loving daughter--Thank you for inspiring me. I know it's been difficult dividing my time. I want you to know this is all for you so that someday you can be proud and say, "my mom was an author!" I love you more than life itself and always will. ~Mommy
