Congratulations, Dan and Sarah! (not ours)
Through our daughter, Jackie & I have become friends with Dan Carpenter and Sarah Walker:
Our Sarah has been friends with Dan for a few years now; they used to work together and became fast friends quickly:
According to Sarah, Dan is the friend she can always count on now matter what! Dan has even had the opportunity to "baby-sit" our grand dog Millie:
That was an experience our daughter will never forget. Perhaps some day we will tell the story about the shower. Dan we love you.
Dan met his Sarah online a couple of years ago. Our Sarah was honored that she was the first of Dan's friends to get to know Sarah and meet her in person. Well, Sarah and Sarah quickly formed a friendship and sometimes it's scary when the three of them get together because Sarah and Sarah are VERY similar:
Even after our Sarah started working in NYC, the three of them make a point of getting together as often as possible. No matter what they do, they always have a great time and I know our Sarah thinks the world of Dan & Sarah:
As we said, Dan & Sarah have been going out for a fairly long time and finally Dan "popped the question". They went on a Celebrity Cruise to the Caribbean and even though it would have been the perfect time in many people's minds, not for Dan. He wanted the moment to be perfect and he wanted Sarah to be surprised and would wait for that special time to arrive. It finally came after the cruise when Dan decided to give Sarah breakfast in bed. After the bagels and usual breakfast items he asked if she would like desert and came back with a plate with a napkin on top. Well, what a surprise! The plate did have dessert (some M&Ms) but the real treasure was the ring and Sarah did say "YES":
Jackie & I were up in the northeast during the rain, rain & more rain, and had dinner with Dan & Sarah along with our daughter Sarah. As you can see there was much toasting and we all had the chance to admire the "rock" and see how happy the couple are:
It is with great pride & our own excitement that we congratulate both Dan & Sarah. We also wish them all the best for their future together.
May you have much happiness throughout the years and be as happy as two people can be.
As you all know, Sarah did say "Yes" and for your information the happy couple was joined together on December 21, 2006 in Las Vegas:
We would like to wish them all the happiness and prosperity in the many years to come.
