    You honor me with this award and I humbly thank you. I'd like to dedicate it to my parents Harry and Geri Levitan which sadly have both just recently passed on to the great beyond and why I've been so absent on here. Without their support of all my Art forms as parents be it music, Photography or Astrophotography none of It would have been possible. I'll miss my best friends forever and look for 2 new stars in the night sky. Look up everyone!
