I dedicate this book to God, my husband Phil.
Phil my best friend, my companion; my love all in one, you have
loved me, you have been there for me through thick and thin, you have helped me to be who I am today. You have been my greatest teacher you are an example of God. I cannot express the thanks and love I have for you. If it were not for your help and encouragement this book would not have been possible. I love you and thank you for being you.
I love you Phil.
My two friends and teachers Nancy and Conrad Bonneau. Nancy and Conrad you two were here for me from the beginning of my journey in sobriety. I thank your for your love and kindness, I thank you for accepting me the way I am and letting me be me.
I love you both.
Nancy passed away in 2007 and Conrad passed away in 2008.
They are now in peace with their Creator.
I miss them both so much.
My special friend Greg Stein who has since passed on. Greg you have been an inspiration to me throughout my sobriety. I know you are one with God now.
I thank you for being my friend.
Greg passed over in the year 2000.
My dear friend Doris Wells.
Doris you have been here for me you have helped me to become a lady, you have helped me have faith in a power greater then myself. You encouraged me. You let me know I can do anything that I put my heart to. You have shown me how to live and how to die with dignity. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Doris Wells passed away July 21st 2001.
I call Doris my "Earth Angel" I wrote about her in Chapter Five of this book.
Some of the names in this book have been changed to protect the innocent.
God has been with me when I was not open enough to know it.
God has loved me until I could love myself. God never stopped loving me. God has sent me teachers. God is within you and I. If
it were not for God I would not be on this earth.
I am grateful. Thank you God.
