I, especially, appreciate the patience,understanding, and support from my closest friends, Leah, Traci, Richard, Ruby, andAmanda during the numerous times when I was certain there was no end in sight. Man>thanks also goes to Texas Tech's Ultimate Frisbee team for allowing me to use you all as anemotional punching bag.I also would like to thank Jim for re-introducing me to Christ. Somewhere along theway, I became spiritually lost wandering aimlessly with despair, and although it occurred atthe tail end of my graduate school experience, I have found Christ again which has allowedme to find myself Thanks Jim.Finally, I thank God. I know through him, I have the ability to do anything.
