I sincerely appreciate the time and talents of the musicians who made this a memorable CD. They took time away from work, some without pay, made sacrifices of their nights and weekends in order to record. And then there's Cody... Dave says he wishes he had a "Cody". Well I'm darn lucky I have him. We would never have been able to complete this CD without his time and talents. Not only his singing and playing but his engineering and ability to learn how to use anything we throw at him. Thank You! – Mark Puskarich
After extensive testing, I am happy to be celebrating my fourth year of being cancer free. I want to thank so many friends and family I don't know where to start or stop. This project has turned out to be a huge blessing. As Mark said on the notes from the first CD cover, he and Cody used some tough love on me. Dragging me down to the studio and making me play when all I wanted to do was lay down and die. They were trying to give me something to live for, and for that I am eternally grateful. I can't give my wife Corrina enough credit for helping me and just putting up with me during my treatments and various surgeries. I was not a nice person to be around during that time. Ultimately I give all the praise to God. I believe it is because Jesus lives that I do, too. Thanks for everyone's support. - Lorne Vanfossen
