  • Easter day, we found out my father had terminal lung cancer & was at a nearby VA hospital. His congrgation had a 'Celebration of his life" for him that I, my dh and youngest daughter attended. When I showed my dad my ring (as we had already had them) he asked my dh if he had asked me yet and he said no (because he hadn't) because he was waiting for the right time to ask my dad for my hand. Well my dad said, "well I guess you should ask her now", so my dh, (totally nervous and thrown off) got down on one knee and asked me in front of my dad, my daughter and his congregation. And I knew that when that day came, my dad wouldn't be there (as he passed away on may 20th of this year) to walk me down the aisle, but I'll always have the memory that he got to see my dh propose which is priceless and will stay with me forever.

  • My DH took me to NY last Dec. After a Broadway show he had a limo waiting for us out front. We took a ride bridearound Central Park and most of Manhattan. We stopped at the Rock and rode to the top. While standing on top of the world he got down on one knee and asked!

  • My husband took me to a really nice restaurant and while we were waiting for the first course he came to my side of the table and kneeled down. Me, miss not-so-romantic asked "What are you doing down there?!?" LOL. He was so nervous he gave a little speach but I only caught parts of it because his voice was shaky then asked "will you spend the rest of your life with me?" SOOOOO SWEET!!! (naturally, I said yes!)
