I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart the person who magically came into my life 8 years ago and blessed it: Jesica L. Santos (as she herself always insists on adding her middle initial). She encouraged me constantly and withstood with me some of the most difficult tests of love while never giving up on me despite my giving her reasons to. She lightened up my life every day and made this world better, while remaining completely oblivious to these facts, proof of her humility and kind humanity. I have never met someone so warm, passionate about life, with such sensitive soul, driven and selfless in my life. Jes, I could have never become the man I am without your love.
