To a woman who stood by her moral convictions, values, and keeping her family together after going through so many downfalls in life and raising six children during difficult times. We call it the rough side of the mountain top. We came a mighty long way through ups and downs. However, with faith, never quitting, and believing in change, our mother provided us, her children, a way out. This was the motto for our family. For that, this is to our mother, Alice, to whom this book is dedicated.
