This book is dedicated to my mother, Beryl Marguerite (Loeppky) Hull, who passed away suddenly at Christmas during this book's development.
My mother was brilliant; she had a quick wit and an intellect that will be sorely missed. How she enjoyed watching this book unfold and trying to guess my next moves! She had studied Latin when she was young, and she loved the opportunity to see it appear in my work and to coach me on it.
Mom followed this manuscript through to the end of Unit 3. How I wish she could see it now.
