Summer of Love Finalists: Mischelle and Gary

Monday's Runner-up: Mischelle and Gary

Mischelle and Gary's story started 25 years ago.  They met as members of the bridal party for mutual friends who were getting married.  After knowing one another for only 5 days Gary popped the question, but Mischelle wasn’t quite ready to commit.  After a few more months of letters and phone calls Mischelle went to visit Gary in Oregon where he asked her to marry him again, and this time she said yes!  Now 25 years later Mischelle and Gary are still very happy to be together and have three children, Andrew, Amanda and Anna.  They are keeping healthy and recently have supported each other through a family weight loss of over 85 pounds.  Best of luck to Mischelle and Gary.
