Abby had been hired as a wedding photographer for the event. Joe was the best man.

Eastman, Alyson.jpg

HEALTH CARE: The government should play a role in healthcare. It seems there is Medicare for the elderly and Medicaid for the poor; surely there is a need to complete the gap in coverage for those that do not fit into either of those categories.
