The content of this book of poetry would not be possible without my family. You know I love you all. I would like to single-out the incomparable Toby Stevens, my mother-in-law, for being matriarch and CEO. You have been instrumental in so many celebrations (some of which are honored here). You were born on Valentine's Day and have a very big heart. Thanks for being you.
I must also recognize Sandbox Creative in Webster Groves, MO for the design and layout of Poetry Before Breakfast. Dave Cox, thank you for your faith in me and support of this project.
