Many thanks to my parents, Millard and Norma Francis, for their encouragement, development and faith through the years. Additional thanks to my brothers, Mitchell and Jeffrey Francis, for their support. Also, thanks to co-author Greg Horine and tech editor Sara Strock for their assistance with this book.
I dedicate this book to my personal project team: my lovely wife, Mayme, and my "fabulous five" children: Michael, Victoria, Alex, Luke, and Elayna.
