I may write about my weekend time in due course. This isn't about that.
This is to thank my dear wife, Valerie.
My Valerie knew from the start how much this meant to me, and from the very first she very graciously saw to it that I had all the time I needed to read, ponder, study, and prepare. She shared my joy about the opportunity, prayed for me, and cheered me on as I went off to do it.
Thank you, Valerie! I love you!
