Jeffery I say that he’s a really good and sweet man. I say what Billy did, he really deserves. That’s really sweet of what he did. Other than selling it just to get a little bit of money, returning it to the actual owner. Got him some good money, a home, and finally reuniting with his family, he hasn’t seen in over 16yrs. Sad what he and his family had to go through for 16yrs. They’ve got a lot of catching up to do. His niece and nephew finally get to meet their Uncle they’ve never met before. Even though I don’t know him, glad that he’s finally found his family, and they found him.

Lewis I’d like to know how I became homeless in the first place I love these homeless people have families
