Love Stories of Hawaii

Special Occasion

My Promise
Dedicated to Norma Hafer

Submitted by Barry

In the late 1960s, I had promised my mother that I was going to play football for the Green Bay Packers and be able to afford to take to her to Hawaii. She worked in a factory and never really took any vacations. I only remember one family vacation with my mom, my sister and myself where we drove to upper Michigan. In 1979 I got married and never played football with the Green Bay Packers. But 8 years later, my wife and I took my mother to Hawaii to keep my original promise from the time I was 12 years old. It was the first time she ever flew on a plane and we stayed in Maui for 1 week and it was great. She now has Alzheimer's disease and doesn't remember the vacation or the promise I made...but I always will.
