I wish to express my gratitude to the many people who have supported and assisted me throughout life, without whom I would not have this web page. There are too many to list separately, but I am grateful to all who have been my Patrons, Benefactors, and supporters; who believed in my and my work, such as Lorin Hawley, Lisa Hawley,Bruce Hose, Adele Pruitt, Bev van Pelt, Clovice Lewis, Stan McDaniel, Scotty McNeal, and others. Of course the list includes my mother and father, who made sure I always had a piano, and a piano teacher, however many times we moved from state to state. Among the family who cared and helped are my sisters, and my three grandsons;, Casey, Corey, and Riley, plus the many friends who stood by me. Included are the many teachers, students, friends (plus enemies, and even x-husbands) who taught me so much, plus all organizations that paid or supported me, such as the NACUSA, Ukiah Symphony, Laney College, churches, and many short term jobs I held. Finally to all the loving souls both from this world and the next, who encouraged me, and gave me hope. I give thanks to you all, and mostly, to the greater Life force that is within us all, which we feel, but cannot truly understand. Yet.
