Notes

  • Dedication: For those who have walked before me and those who walk beside me; for those who live in the light and those who live in the shadow; for my high school English teacher, J. Sykes; for my sister, who survived her darkest year, and for my family, who journeyed with her; for those I love and those I admire; but most of all for Udo.
