To my dear late husband Frank Pooler
whose amazing talent and charisma as a choral conductor, teacher, tenor saxophone player, and continual mentor to me and to many throughout the world gave me my musical life. Like my father, Frank’s heart for music helped me to understand that music is not music until it comes from and through the heart, as it most certainly did through him in everything he did.
Thank you, Frank, for your love and encouragement that I still presently feel even though you’ve gone ahead to Heaven. You inspired me most by always being yourself while allowing me to love you and to be loved by you. You are one of a kind.

Special thanks to:
Frank Pooler & John Prince who created the best “Musical Camelot” ever at Cal-State University, Long Beach. You encouraged your students in their respective talents and gave them professional opportunities as well. We “Camelotians” will never forget those “Camelot Years” (1965-1983). Thanks to you two, the CSULB alums on this album, which includes the Executive & Music Producers, are still making music, fully aware, though, that those Camelot years were likely the best of our lives because of you.

Richard Carpenter for writing one of the best Christmas standards ever and for choosing Frank’s lyrics for the song. The instrumental rendition of Merry Christmas, Darling on this album is a proxy dedication to you, Richard, from Frank. Since he is no longer here to play his beloved tenor saxophone in your honor, Frank’s favorite “ax man” from CSULB, Tom Kubis, is the featured soloist on your song. So, from Tom & Frank & me (Rhonda), thank you, Richard.
Tom Kubis for being willing to take my unusual and sometimes crazy ideas and making them a reality that came together so well under his artistic expertise, for discovering the heart of my dad’s trumpet, for being patient with my concept for the album, and for working so hard to bring this album into fruition. Tom, you’re the best!
The Musicians who worked with and honored my father, my family, my late husband, and me by playing on this album.
Rich Sumner who took charge of the “left brain” and artistic aspects of this album,bringing it to perfect completion.

“I love you all! Thank you so much!”
Rhonda

-------

To my father Rolland Sandberg who first introduced me to music at the age of two, who was one of the most natural and versatile musicians and conductors I have ever known, and who loved and excelled in every style of music which filled our home in all of my growing-up years. My father made me love all kinds of music because he loved it all and did it all from his heart. Thank you, Dad, for inspiring me to love and make music from my own heart by watching you do so with yours.

To my mother Katherine Sandberg who was a beautiful singer, dancer, children’s choir director, and encourager. My dear mother gave me confidence to pursue music because I knew that she was behind me 100%, attending as many of my performances as possible. Most of all, she loved me no matter how challenging I could be, especially when I needed her most. Thank you, Mom, for being the best mom anyone could ever want and for being one of the cutest and funniest ladies I’ve ever known.

To my sister Karen Brooks whose undying support and love for me throughout my life has given me courage to try new things and to step forward when I would hesitate. She led me into music when we were very young, and I followed. I cherish our many hours of mimicking violinists with our batons while “playing” along with classical recordings and lip synching to the original Broadway recording of “The Sound of Music” when we were kids. Thank you, Karen, for your continual support for what I do even now and for first introducing me to the true joy of music.

To my brother-in-law Marvin Brooks whose instruction as my 7th grade art teacher showed me the connection between the musical arts and the visual arts and who gave me confidence to create things with my hands and to pencil sketch even though I had no natural talent at any of it. Thank you, Marvin, for having great patience with me as your student and for knowing how to give this no-talent art student something at which she could still have a feeling of success.

To my niece Kristine Nelson whose birth into this world inspired me to write a piece of music called “Precious Child” and whose pure, sweet, perfectly-in-tune voice led me to continually want to hear her sing, even in front of my late husband’s college choir at his request when she was a young child. Thank you, Kris, for being a continual inspiration to me in every way – as a person, as a successful advocate for needy children, and as the truly fine woman you’ve become.

To my nephew Kurt Nelson whose versatility as a musician, singer, composer, teacher, writer, and lover of nature as well as his ever-present smile all come together to make him a stellar addition to our family and a great joy whenever he is around. Thank you, Kurt, for being a great husband to my precious niece, for giving our family a wonderful new dynamic, for being a terrific nephew, and for writing such a beautiful song for me for Christmas in 2013. Your song, along with my niece’s wonderful poem, are gifts I will cherish forever.

To my sweet little dog Corki Lefse Pooler who brings me joy every day by simply being the best dog on the planet.

To my friend Harjit Singh (Bubba) who helped me through the loss of my husband and who continues to be the best friend anyone could ever want.

To my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
to the glory of God
by the power of the Holy Spirit
with deep and sincere gratefulness forever.
