Far out. I haven't commented much. You seem like a good dude. Glad you guys are about to pull it over the finish line. My wife was not born here. But she busted her ass to be here legally

Before you die, you should have a will with extra copies. The old saying "No one will screw you faster than family" is bloody well true.
