These awards were given, like most awards, by designers of other pages, who are artists in their own right. I display them here with pride.

I wish to acknowledge the work of my son Ben who does the work on this web site. While the content and photos are mine, the appearence and even the fact that this is on the internet at all is entirely due to his work. Ben started this page in 1998 at age 16, and with little training, has a deft, intuitive command of HTML. If you are impressed with the work shown here, it is Ben's work you are admiring. Ben has a deep commitment to service to others and this web site is an example of how his work has touched others.

Thanks Ben, well done!
