I would also like to thank my stepmother, Patricia, for taking my father's hand in marriage and being the companion he needs. She's sweet and devoted and has been nothing but nice to me. I'm grateful for the love she's given my siblings and for bringing cheer to their home. I'm sure her own children love her just as much.
Lastly, I would like to thank my mother-in-law, Katherine, for being a wonderful surrogate mom while I live so far away from mine. She's welcomed me into her home and has gone out of her way to make me feel important and cared for in the Kesler family. Our long conversations and many shared jokes are some of my favorite things in the world.
THANKS TO ALL THE MOTHERS!
