not have done this without you both."

is in awe of [both of you].Thank you for being a
steadfast role model for my son.
Dennis you are so gifted with these kids…your sense of
fun and humor just surrounds these kids with acceptance

the children, you always care enough to take the time

represents. Thanks". ~ Dr. Roger G., Sylvan Lake (Honbu
