About This CD
Dedicated to my family, the Hopes of Florida and the Sawyers of South Carolina, and to the memory of Mary, Edythe, and Mitchell Hope, and to my sister Michele Hope and finally, to Lady, Bogey and McCall, the Ocean Reef Dolphins.
MANY THANKS: To all the musicians for their wonderful talents generously shared in making this CD. Special thanks to Don Hyink and Jack Grochmal for their skill, patience and hard work in making it a reality.
Finally, special thanks to the way-too-many-to-list friends, relatives, songwriters, musicians, artists, and other creative people all over the world who have inspired and encouraged me to continue writing and performing songs.
