Thank You

A few extra special grats appear here.

Merci Tout La Monde

I have met a lot of amazing people over the years and recently I've forged new and interesting friendships with people who mean a lot to me.

While some people may be coworkers, some contributors and some well-wishers, they all deserve recognition and thanks.

With that said, i'm going to continue this project of making sure everyone who has helped me to where I am now has been shown the gratitude they deserve.

Love you guys!
