This book is dedicated to:
First and foremost to -
God for granting me the
strength to write this book. Without Him,
would not have been possible. It took me
over five years to write it, as many parts were too overbearing for me to recall and I would be forced to retreat to my bed
for weeks at a time due to severe depression. So "Thank You Lord for blessing me through not only those five years, but for
where I stand now, in Jesus name, amen."
Secondly, my reason for living and the love
of my life that God blessed me with . . . Brian - for his enduring love, encouragement, support, and gifted sense of
humor. As painful as this book has been to write, his playful, spontaneous acts of interjected humor made it that much more
bearable for me to complete.
He is a beacon of light that shines in my
life and I will be forever grateful to God for blessing me with this compassionate and sensitive soul mate. He is my hero
in more ways than one.
you Brian, for showing me that there is indeed life and love after pain, and for showing me the meaning of true love.
I love you so very much!"
When God made you, He was thinking
of me !
Brian also served our country for 13
years in the United States Army and Navy with many high honors. He enlisted when he was just 17 years old. He served
in the first Gulf war;
Desert Shield and Desert Storm.
Only two defining forces have ever offered
to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American G. I.
One died for your soul; the other for
My two hero's!!
