* My profound thanks to everyone who tried to help me post-9/17/92 - but I was too "broken" to understand and remember. Kody, thank you for the '92 Homecoming carnation.


* Thank you to Salem College for allowing me to use their photograph of Oprah Winfrey speaking at the 2000 graduation/commencement ceremony. 


* Many thanks to the members of Home Moravian Church, the Junior League of Winston-Salem, and the Dogwood Garden Club...who fed my family while I was in coma and awakening! 


* Thank you to Forsyth Country Day School. 
  
* Thank you to the late June Lyday Orton, a former neighbor, and inspiration for always trying another way.


Many thanks to my guardian angels
