I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Patrician McCarthy, President and Founder of Mien Shiang Institute, mentor and friend.  Without her encouragement and wise counsel these stories would have remained untold.

I am also greatly indebted to  John Agan, Historian, Webster Parish, La.  for expert historical advice.  Heartfelt thanks also to my lifelong BFF, Janice for reading and editing my work.  And most importantly, thanks to my husband Gene for his stalwart support and inspiration.
