Emeritus – thank you and we wish you well…
Rev. Denise D. Dumars, M. A., Advisory Board Member
Rev. Donnell Miller, Ph.D., Johnston Center for Integrative Studies; Horsham Clinic; Moreno Institute/West Emeritus, who passed this past year from complications of cancer – and – who will be greatly missed.
A special goodbye to George Hersh, Ph.D., Advisory Board, Emeritus, who passed into Fair Avalon and who will be greatly missed.

Editing a journal such as this one, no matter how small, is a big job, and one that requires more commitment than rewards.  We also understand the calls of the “real world” of career must, at time, overtake those who have put so much in the way of time and energy into a volunteer publication.




At this time we should like to also express gratitude and good wishes for future successes to these contributors.  It’s been a terrific experience working with you, and we hope that you will continue to stay in touch. Good luck to you in all things!
