THE SOUL IN OUR HEARTS
This book is dedicated to my mother Margaret and my father Dominic, who are now deceased. To my children Dominic, Michael and Kimberly. To all the doctors, nurses, law enforcement officers, EMS, firefighters and our armed forces who have given so unselfishly of themselves in order to help others. To the patients I have cared for and their families, and to those that God has taken from us despite how hard we have tried to save them. Combined, you have all given me the gift of knowledge, and have helped me to become a better person.
To Kathy De Stefano and Scott Schartz. You both there for me while I was recovering from surgery due to a serious work-related injury. Scott, you took care of my house issues, Kathy you came by every day to be sure I had what I needed. My son Michael always came by to keep me company. Kathy and Michael, you refused to let me be the stubborn mule that I'm known to be since I never ask for help. My friend Alana Adams said to me, "You're the strongest man I know." My strength came from all of you. My family and friends. Kathy, there will always be a special place in my heart for you that is only filled with love.
