  Mr. BALDERSON. Madam Speaker, I rise today to recognize a matter that 
is very near and dear to my heart--the marriage of my son, William 
Joshua Balderson to Chelsea Alise Gallaugher this coming Saturday, 
April 6, 2019.
   As a parent, I know that one of life's greatest joys is witnessing 
the marriage of one of your children, and the blending of two families 
into one. As parents, we can only try to raise our children with honor, 
teach them well, and send them out into the world as respectable adults 
who are prepared to face life's challenges. Everything else--successful 
careers, love, marriage, and building families of their own--those are 
   What a blessing it is for Joshua and Chelsea to have found each 
other, and to share such love for one another. I know I don't speak for 
only myself when I say how excited and honored we are to welcome 
Chelsea into the Balderson family this weekend. I thank Chelsea's 
parents, Bill and Karen Gallaugher, for sharing their beautiful 
daughter with our family. I feel blessed to have Chelsea as my soon-to-
be daughter-in-law. I wish my wonderful son, Joshua, and his bride a 
lifetime of health and happiness with one another. May this be the 
first of many blessings to come.
