Thank you to my amazing husband, Karl, who encouraged me even when the times got tough. Thanks to my children, Elizabeth, Luke, and Adam for falling asleep at night so I could get my homework done! Thank you Kim for creating some competition to get this paper finished. I couldn't have done any of this without my family and friends and for that I am thankful.
