Love Stories of Hawaii


A little piece of paradise
Dedicated to My Parents

Submitted by Anonymous

My mother struggled to raise three children on her own for six years. She finally found a mate that was good to her and her children. My new father and my mother have lived happily together as common law husband and wife for 25 years. They survived a lot of hard times and enjoyed many good times. They did their very best to raise us to be good and caring adults.

Recently, my parents found out that their common law marriage was not legal in the state of Ohio and they would have to have a traditional wedding. My mother is currently unemployed and my dad is retired so the wedding will have to be simple and inexpensive.

I would like to help make my parents wedding something very special, but, being a single parent I am financially embarrassed and unable to do very much. Then I found this contest and thought that it would be great if I could win it for them. My parents have given so much and deserve to have a little piece of paradise.

My father is a Vietnam veteran and hopes someday to get to Hawaii to see the Arizona memorial. My mother has dreamed of going to Hawaii as long as I can remember and said that a wedding in Hawaii would be the perfect wedding. She said that her life would be complete if she could see Kilauea and the beautiful scenery she dreams about. My sister committed suicide when she turned thirteen and my mother said that if she ever got to Hawaii she would like take my sister's ashes and scatter them in paradise. To this day, my mother has not been able to lay her ashes to rest. She holds on to the dream that someday she can let her go in a much better place, maybe somewhere in a place called paradise.

Her loving daughter.
