None of this would be possible without the support of an incredible wife and partner helping me raise a family and have an incredible time doing it. This beautiful and incredible women is truly my match. By 10 years old she had saved 3 boys her own age from drowning, resuscitating two of them. For that she was parded in front of serveral TV shows (like Good Morning America) and received an award from the president at a ceremony at the Whitehouse.
