How He Surprised His Wife On Their Anniversary Is So Beautiful. Trust Me...This Is Not Your Typical Love Story
February 24, 2014
It's been 20 years since they first met. On their anniversary this year, he surprised his wife with something very, very special. This is the incredible story told by their son, who is quite proud of his parents' journey. After reading this, you will be too...
This was taken when my dad flew into Guyana 20 years ago after leaving the Royal Marines to embark on an expedition to deliver malarial aid with Raleigh International.
Conan Doyle's, "The Lost World", is set in Guyana, in case you didn't know...
Kaitur Falls was, and is, so inaccessible that very few get to see it.
This is the team that would deliver aid to settlements throughout Guyana...
...like this one!
On this trip, my dad met the expedition nurse... who would become his wife. More on that soon.
Children in line waiting to be treated...
Administering vaccines (mumps, polio, etc.) and conducting malarial smears.
What an amazing view... the picture does it no justice.
One day, a Rastafarian found the team and explained that he had been shot in the shoulder by a bow and arrow by another tribe.
My dad held the man's hand while my mom and her partner removed the arrow.
As a token of gratitude, the Rastafarian gave my dad a sock that contained a little diamond.
My dad kept the diamond locked away until this year, when he gave it to a jeweler to be made into a ring.
I can tell you there was a lot of crying when he gave it to mom for their anniversary.
Wish them a happy anniversary by sharing this story!!!
