Special Occasion

Hawaii: A Place for Celebrations
Dedicated to Dennis

Submitted by Debbie

My husband and I were high school sweethearts. We met and started dating the summer before my sophomore and his senior year. We married in 1971, the same month I graduated from high school. Twenty-five years later, we renewed our vows. What a moving experience that was! We had grown up together and faced many challenges, hardships and good times. The words of the wedding vows brought all those experiences into perspective. "For better"...the birth of our daughter in 1976; my graduation from college at age 31 in 1984 and graduation from law school at age 34 in 1987; a wonderful family vacation to Hawaii during the summer of 1985 to celebrate my acceptance into law school-a wonderful week on Oahu with my husband, me, my daughter, my parents and sister; and another wonderful Hawaiian vacation during the summer of 1987 to celebrate my upcoming graduation from law school-this time my parents, my husband and me visiting four islands for 3 days each. What wonderful memories we have of those trips! "For worse"...a near-fatal auto accident my husband was involved in the month before our daughter was born. "In sickness and in health"... my fight against breast cancer - surgeries, chemo and radiation. Last month, I celebrated the 5th anniversary of my cancer diagnosis! What a wonderful occasion for another exciting trip to our favorite vacation spot-Hawaii! On the wall of my office hangs a beautiful poster of Hana on the Island of Maui-my favorite spot in all the world! One day soon, I hope to return with my sweetheart!
