Dedication

This book is dedicated to the memory of Nathan Patt, whose love for my children was as big as the sea; my sister, Melissa Gervais, who will always be my one and only Missy Mouse; Matthew Rutter, one of the most humble mentors I have had the good fortune to work with; and to my father, Alan Rice, who instilled the idea, “You can accomplish anything if you put your mind to it!”
