I can never express how much you have meant to me during my research in Thailand and a mere thank you does not seem to suffice, but is sincerely given. I wish to thank my committee, particularly Margaret Sutton, my advisor who assisted in finishing this part of my life. I also give thanks to Heidi Ross, Tarajean Yazzie-Mintz, and Janet Bennett for making sure I safely cross this threshold. My deepest gratitude goes to my wife, Pornchinok Chantar who so willingly and without question sacrificed on my behalf and who has supported me every step of the way during this research. You have been my greatest life blessing.
