[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E388] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] CONGRATULATIONS TO JOSHUA AND CHELSEA ______ HON. TROY BALDERSON of ohio in the house of representatives Tuesday, April 2, 2019 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 bonuses. 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. ____________________
