The production of Hallowed Ground, Sacred Journeys would have been impossible without the valuable contribution of each of our wives. Their willingness to support the long hours of research, travel, and detail work, taking care of things at home while their husbands labored over this project have allowed such a publication as this. Our appreciation is unbounded for their love, suggestions, counsel, and encouragement. We could simply do nothing without their love and encouragement. To merely list their names seems such an insufficient token of our absolute reliance on their kindness and love:
Linda J. Livingstone
Tina R. Whitchurch
It is such a wonderful thing to have an eternal companion who loves you in spite of your weaknesses and eccentricities. Our complete devotion and love goes to them.
Several student workers have slaved long hours over the book as well as the electronic version of Hallowed Ground, Sacred Journeys. Victoria (Jones) James, and Jill Catts spent many hours in the beginning helping us organize and structure the images and correlate the text. Robert L. Hall traveled to Salt Lake City several time to obtain photos that we needed to compliment the project. Amy Meeker, Brooke Burdge, Kimber Merrill and Anna Cariello spent hundreds of hours assisting with images, text, copyright, and other numerous issues. Our heartfelt thanks and these few lines of appreciation do not convey our acknowledgement of their commitment and effort.
"I have been sharing this information with friends around the world and the response is outstanding. These tours contain information that we could never access on our own and can be shared and treasured forever."
