Love Stories of Hawaii

Special Occasion

Hold On To Your Dreams
Dedicated to John and Madeline Gioia

Submitted by Denise

The love story begins by going back in time. The date is April 25, 1953. John & Madeline Gioia take that dream walk down the aisle. Almost 50 years later, 3 children, 6 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild they still remember that wonderful day. They dream of taking their family (all 16 of us)to Hawaii to celebrate their 50 years together. Living on fixed incomes makes their dream only a dream. They offered to take us to help celebrate their 50 years together. We realize that this cannot happen. We the children and grandchildren are preparing a special surprise celebration by giving them a party in a catering hall on Staten Island. My father always dreamed of going to Hawaii. He always said that he wanted his bride to see Hawaii. Parents like ours have sacrificed all their lives for their children, grandchildren and great-grandchild. How wonderful would it be for my father to give his bride of 50 years a dream honeymoon to Hawaii. Age and time should never stop you from living your dreams!!!!
