6. Uncles and Aunts: Countless times you listened to the still small voice, and your wise words or actions were just the encouragement and love I needed at that moment.

5. Brent and Janet: There were days I told you “I can’t do this” and you guys said I could. I did and much of the perseverance came from your encouragement!  🙂
