Special thanks to Dan King who made this site possible, to Rob Baddorf who raised my recording standards, to L.L. Barkat who pushed me to trust the listener, and to Gretchen Gregorchik who gave me permission to share stories that unearth her past. (Thanks, Mom.)
Reconciliation with my father progressed slowly for 11 years until he died on January 26, 2009. He had an uncanny inability to take responsibility, but I am indebted to God for healing what could be healed.
