Dedicated to Shila and Patton
(Big Bear Lake, California)
Shila and Patton, my children, my protectors, my teachers, my dogs, my heart. Who taught me ethics and values no people ever had (save my grandmother). They taught me to know love, loyalty, devotion, courage and heart, to know them without limits and to have them without condition.
I would not be the person that I am today had I not been blessed by those two tremendous spirits.
When I close my eyes, I can still feel you by my side,
and you will always SHINE INSIDE!
