In addition to my family and friends, I am indebted to the people who have helped me in every area of my life.

These people have special gifts and talents.

They are supportive and caring; they are experts in their own field; and they have lifted me up during challenging times.

We are all a community of people who help others: plumbers, painters, electricians, health and wellness coaches, nutritionists, housekeepers, athletic trainers, social action volunteers, IT people, lawyers, accountants, nurses, doctors, teachers, first responders, and as we have learned during the COVID-19 crisis, grocery store workers, and every person involved in delivering goods from one place to another.

I am grateful to all who bring their special gifts to help make our lives easier and the world a better place.
