I dedicate this book to my father who gave birth to it on December 22, 1999. It took a lot of courage to share what was initially my personal journal. I want to thank my wife Claudia who encouraged me to share it with all of you. I love you. I want to thank Chelsea Russo for organizing twenty years of thoughts and emotions into what you are about to read. The front and back cover are the brainchild of Sylvain Béliveau who gave life to the pages contained within them.
