To Shannon Mara Key:

Shan-Shan, this photo of a new dawn in San Pedro and all the other Bestbird Pages are my presents to you for your wedding day - which will dawn as the first day in your next grand adventure. I wish you much good luck, although little of that will be needed if you handle your new challenge with the skill you have used in your past endeavors of importance. Were I an Ernest Hemmingway, or even a Bill Gates, I would have done better in the presents department. But, those more accomplished or more valuable presents would not, could not, be given with more love. Dad.
