Wedding to Remember: Jeff and Lorrie

This go fund me is in response to a tweet I made, sharing a video of my father’s engagement proposal to my mother. When I made the tweet, sharing this video, I anticipated about 6 favorites from close friends. My whole family is overwhelmed with gratitude!Several people have responded, requesting a way to contribute to pay for my parents new wedding! First, a background;My parents both came from nothing. Their first wedding was televised and at an electronics store, because they were too poor for a traditional wedding. They raised 8 children, including myself. Each with unique desires and talents. They have made EVERY sacrifice for their kids.When their marriage failed, our whole family was devastated and torn apart. Years went by, with fights and slick comments being waged from both sides.Then, redemption.Both of my parents each went on a separate journey for self renewal. My dad started going to the gym and lost a ton of weight. He started writing poetry and spending more time with his grand kids. My mother found peace in nature, through meditation, and self empowerment.My dad was a truck driver for 20 years, went back to school, and got his RN and now works 60 hour weeks at University of Toledo Medical Center.My mother struggles to keep jobs due to health complications, but is very passionate about taking care of people. She used to work in a nursing home, and would spend hours after work sitting with patients who were crossing to the other side.My point being, I have two really awesome parents. Who have sacrificed so much of themselves for their families. I want to give back in one way, to give them the dream wedding every couple desires. A perfect conclusion to a beautiful, and very true story.
