This proposal was very near and dear to my heart. I've known Paul and Ashley for 3 and a half years....well, because....I am dating Paul's son. Haha! I was honored to be asked to share this moment with them.
He surprised Ashley while she was out to dinner with the girls. Paul's friend played guitar while he sang "Grow Old With You" by Adam Sandler. Sandler sang it in one of Ashley's favorite movies, The Wedding Singer.
"I wanna make you smile whenever you're sad Carry you around when your arthritis is bad All I wanna do is grow old with you
I'll get your medicine when your tummy aches Build you a fire if the furnace breaks Oh, it could be so nice, growing old with you
I'll miss you Kiss you Give you my coat when you are cold
Need you Feed you Even let you hold the remote control
So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink Put you to bed when you've had too much to drink Oh, I could be the man who grows old with you I wanna grow old with you"
"Grow Old With You" - Adam Sandler
Paul was quite nervous to sing in front of a restaurant full of people, but I could tell that the only person he saw in the room was Ashley. He had everyone wiping away tears as he finished this song and popped the question.
