Thank you for always being the bar for measuring the caliber of person I share time with, and for guiding me to be brave enough to join the struggle. Because of you... I believe , often on faith, that the struggle is worth it. Thank you for always having my back.
Yours= Best Laugh Ever. Thank you for teaching me, in my very first year of training, how to listen when there are no words. You have helped so many of my people laugh more because you taught me to listen with my eyes, head, gut, and heart.

Thank you for pushing me to take your honors English comp course (and I fought ya on it - no surprise). Because of it and you, my lowest grade on any paper at Madison was a 94... and later, I literally wrote my dissertation (first draft) in 2 week. I wish I could have told you that.
Emmons Collins, M.D.
You once asked me to join you as you were “building an empire”. You certainly never needed me for that... But, will you please help me now, as I take a stab at building a new paradigm? Thank you for being such a strong role model, and my friend.
