Just so everyone knows, I am ever grateful to Jana, Jamie, Mayrie, Judy,
Lori, Cindy and all the other scanners and volunteers who are helping me
become the best proof reader I can be.  I cannot thank everyone enough for
your help, tips, and most importantly, your patience!  I hope no one is
every offended when I am wanting to fix anything I can or improve its
overall readability for sighted readers.   Like everyone, I want to make my
books as close to perfect as possible so that many people can benefit from
an easy read.  

Take care!
Valerie
