Submission #1: 
John and Jessica Williams 

“My wife and I have been married for a little over a year now and have been together for three. While we met and dated in high school, we lost touch after then for about six years. A mutual friend of ours asked me to go out one night. After about an hour of sitting at a table, I just happened to turn around and see her standing in the doorway. Our eyes immediately met and the embrace we gave each other is something I will remember for the rest of my life. The rest is history. We have been together ever since. We were married on Nov. 2, 2013, the best day of my life. I could not imagine my life without her and our two beautiful kids. Despite losing touch for all that time, I believe God had his hands in this, molding us into the individuals we were meant to be for each other. I love you Jessica Williams, and am looking forward to the rest of our lives together.”

Submission #3: 
Tisha and DeJuan Powell

“My husband DeJuan and I have been married almost 17 years, and for a huge portion of those years he worked 2 jobs to support our family, so that I can be a stay at home mom, and even now works 12 hours a day. Even though he works these long hours he still takes time to play games with our 10 year old daughter, or work out or play basketball with our 14 year old son, do bible study along with me and often takes time during his lunch break to visit his mom, or my Uncle who has Cerebral Palsy and is homebound. He’s wonderful, and I would love to win this prize just to give him some stress free time and give the two of us some much needed time together. I am so in love with this man and thankful for his hardworking, giving spirit.”

Submission #4
Allison Elizabeth Spiers and Logan

 “This is me and my fiancee logan. We have been together for a year and currently have a baby boy on the way. This past year has been a rough one. We lost each other for awhile only to randomly meet again and fall for each other all over again. He has been my inspiration and my fire. He helped me get my ged and helped me go into the army. Of course I didn’t make it but he still says he’s proud of me for doing my best. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without him. To be honest I don’t really care for a prize. I care to let everyone know that if someone is worth it, fight for them. Don’t let them go. There have been several times where things have gotten rough for us. We both were homeless for awhile and yet he still managed to get us by. Even now, I am a cashier and times are very hard for us. But he still finds a way to get us by. Through thick and thin our love has survived. It’s been a bumpy road but I couldn’t imagine going through the hardships without him.”

Submission #6
Steve and Bridgettte Ann Bossert

“Our Rockin’ Romance began when we were young children. We missed each other by two years in Florida. Robert E. Lee High School is where I graduated from in 1986, Steve graduated three years before me. I was at a local horse stables until 1993, along comes Steve and his band for a photo shot two years behind. The name “Robert” is in three generations of my family, it’s in two generations of Steve’s. We met one night and became friends. One day we were all that we had and best friends we became. As time went by we fell in love. “I love you”, he said first. “I know….I love you too.” I replied as I danced away. We have a lot in common; respect, love, kindness and happiness. June 6th of this year is our big day we will hold so dear.”

Steve works so hard for myself, as well as our kids and grandkids to be able to provide not our needs but our wants too! I hope we win because we could truly use a night out together.

Submission #14
Joyce and Charles Oswald

“My husband, Charles and I met in Greenville High School when I was 15, he was 17. We dated a while and he left for National Guard training and he broke up with me….. When I was 17 he told me, ”Marry me or nothing” so we married after about 2 weeks. We have been married for 30 years on Feb. 9. We had many hard times from almost homeless when Allied Chemical closed and we had many bad jobs until he worked his way up to a skill set which opened the doors for him to finally be in engineering maitance for Hyundai. He almost died when our girls were small after falling from a tree while hunting. He hurts everyday from his accident, his ankle is fused and he has a rod in his hip, that leg is shorter than the other due to his accident. He keeps working and we struggled together through the horrible times until we made it to the awesome times. We raised our 2 daughters and now have four wonderful grandchildren. Don’t get me wrong we had break ups and break downs but true love always kept the glue holding enough to fix our hearts back together. Our true love for one another is the only reason we made it through the storms to see the sun shine and watch the flowers grow. Our love together is love for family and we made it from high school sweethearts to rocking chair love of a lifetime. True love true family.”

Rickey and LeeAnn Dennis 

“My husband, Rickey and I have shared many trials and tribulations together. We have loved each other for so long that we literally are ONE. The day we got married was by far the most wonderful day of our lives. From day one, we resolved to take divorce off the table. We vowed that nothing would ever be so bad it would tear us apart and here we are, still together and loving life together!!!! We share something about our day with each other without fail. The key to our happiness is trust, love, family, and many, many beautiful friends! We LOVE our life together”
