To the men and women of the 19th Century
whose labors, courage, and perseverance
helped to shape this country.
Some of your names may have been,
but your deeds will never be, forgotten.
To my family,
especially my wife, Paula, and parents, Tom and Jean,
whose support and encouragement
helped to make this web site possible.
August 2000 to October 19, 2009
Rest in Peace big girl.
Be happy, lay in the sun, and run free.
We will see you again.
Gypsy and my son, Ryan, in 2007.
