Each father wants to protect his daughter, help her choose her fiancé, lead her up to the altar, and pass into the hands of another man who will also love and protect her. And every guy - at least our hero Tyler - has long dreamed of how to ask for the hand of his girlfriend and the blessings of her father. He could not even think that he would not have such an opportunity when Haley’s father, Greg, died in April 2014.
Despite the fact that the couple had been dating for about 7-8 years, Tyler wanted to receive the blessing of the girl’s family. For this, he called her brother and sister to find out what they thought.
“I love you, you are like a brother to me, you know that,” said Brother Haley, Grant. - Everyone in our family knows that 100% of your dad wanted you to marry. He loved you like a son and you had a good relationship. ”
And then Tyler wrote a letter to his girlfriend's deceased father ...:
I'm going to marry your daughter. I always wondered how I would ask for your blessing one day. And this day has come. I would like you to be here and give me your little girl. Because I promise to be even better than you want me to be.
I want to be a man who will share her love and patience and give her everything she needs. I will tell her how beautiful she is. I will show her how to believe in myself. I will take care of her.
I want to give her what others only dream of, and to love her unconditionally, because I do not want to see the world with someone else. But most importantly, I do so that you can proudly call me your son.
On May 31, 2015, a year after his father died, Tyler got on one knee in front of Hayley when they were in Rome. "I am so happy. Yes! ”She answered.
