Luz and I have made a decision. Due to things that I would rather not get into we have decided to stop trying for her visa. I am going to give up my job and move there. Luz is starting right now to find me work there. I thank you all for your support and friendship. This will be the last day I will be on VJ. Good luck to you all.

Gary and Luz

I don't really know what to say but...

Good luck to the both of you, and I hope things work out either way.

You will be missed surely.

Thank you for everything you've done for VJ.

It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.

NOOOOO Gary, don't leave us.

We are really going to miss you here at VJ. You were a great help on this site. Now we won't have someone create the weekly list of all the timelines. I was really looking forward to seeing my NOA2 date posted on your timeline someday soon.

Either way, I really hope you the best with Luz. Best of luck, and yeah log in every once in a while and let us know how you guys are doing.

Best of luck and thanks for all the help! :thumbs:

WOW! Maybe you can stop by the S.E. Asia forum now and again. I would love to hear what kind of job you end up with. This has always been something Sheryl and I have talked about as a possibility if things didn't go our way in the visa process. Good to you and you new family. God Bless.


All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
