Re: G***** summer visitation 2015
From: Patrick <>
To: Desiree Capuano <>
Date: Sun, Apr 26 2015 2:30:25 pm
I have confirmed, with Liz, that she would pick up G***** from LAX on 
May 24, 2015 and she would bring him to LAX on May 27, 2015 or May 28, 
2015 to travel to Vancouver, BC.  During the time G***** would be in 
Los Angeles, he would be staying at Liz's residence.

Is that acceptable to you?  And, if so, do you agree to permit G***** 
to travel from Phoenix, AZ to Los Angeles, CA on May 24, 2015, then from 
Los Angeles, CA to Vancouver, BC on May 28, 2015?
