This memoir was undertaken to chronicle the personal events and thoughts of my life as a keepsake for my family and close friends. My intent was to pass on to children, grandchildren and their progeny the family heritage I had come to know and cherish, to recognize the blessings from man and God and to mention some interesting serendipitous events in my life. I discovered the beauty and awe of Wales, found a relationship to the Cherokee "Trail of Tears", succeeded in research benefiting millions of people with cancer and AIDS and accrued a cadre of colleagues and life-long friends because of one measly obscure germ called Pneumocystis (noo" mo-sis' tis) that causes fatal pneumonia. Serendipitously, my career in academic medicine and infectious diseases was determined by a young patient with tularemia (rabbit fever). The highlight of my life from birth to grave has been my dear wife and children, for which my words fall far short of adequate in descriptions.
