I am proud to dedicate “Stranded at Romson’s Lodge” to three of the most important people in my life: my father, my mother, and my wife.
To the memory of my father, Robert William Callison,
who did not live to see this book completed,
but encouraged me to write it.
September 1931 to December 2013
To my mother, Bertie Lou Perry Callison,
the best mother I ever had, and she is a good one.
To my wife, Linda, who has stuck with me for thirty-eight years.
