Dear family and friends --
Hope your 2000 ends on a happy note and your 2001 is full of laughter and love and only the
occasional tear (just enough to make you appreciate the good in life). As always, my apologies
to all of you I seemingly ignored the other 364 days. I vow again to do better next year,
though it's doubtful anyone will believe me.
P.S. For those of you who are interested, the following pages summarize the major events
that occurred in my life over the past year.
