My brother Bennett chose to make a family with this lovely person. Jordan, is a member of our family & vice versa. She is strong-willed, intelligent, compassionate, funny & 100% awesome. Bennett is lucky-- & Dani & I are lucky to have her as family. Happy Birthday, "Uncle" Jordan. Here is to a bright future rich with family! Also, I hope your day is spider free... ;)
