My name is Jennifer Silverio and I am going to marry William Cocoma
Jr. of Egg Harbor Township, NJ 08234 on September 18th, 2004 at the
Scullville Fire Hall in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey. We both went
to school in Egg Harbor Township public school system. As a matter
of fact we were both in 1st grade together and have our school pictures
After we graduated we went our seperate ways- I moved about an hour
and 1/2 away. One night I was on the internet and someone kept instant
messaging me. Finally I figured out it was Bill! I was dating someone
and he was dating someone and we were both having problems. We spent
several months talking to eachother on the phone. Finally we decided
to meet and hang out and chat face-to-face. I arrived at our meeting
spot before he did. When he pulled into the parking lot I suddenly
knew he was the one for me. After a few months of going back and forth
we both split up with the people we were dating and I moved back to
the area and we got a place together and have been living happily
We are best friends above all else and we laugh and joke all the
time, We think that is the strongest part of our relationship and
what is going to make our marriage last forever. We feel so strongly
we've changed the "Rose Ceremony" to the "Yellow Rose Ceremony" and
made our theme yellow roses and green ivy. Yellow roses stand for
friendship & love so it was a no brainer decision.
Saturday (11/08/03) I had to take the vacuum we bought at Sears back
and exchange it for a different model. Long story short the vacuum
they told me would pick up nuts and bolts couldn't pick up dust and
it was always broke so the store offered to replace it. After 2 hours
of arguing at the store I got my new vacuum. I was a little upset
when I got home Bill went to our friends house to install thier cd
player in their durango. He also "informed me" we were eating there.
I already planned to make something for dinner, I had a bad day at
Sears, etc. so I wasn't so thrilled.
So...I went to our friends house, Ann & Jeff. Ann's mom & dad are
like Bill's adoptive parents. Bill fixed the radio then we had dinner,
then Ann's mom & dad stopped by....it was like 8pm and usually Bill
wants to hang out with them forever but he said he was tired and wanted
to go home, Now I was really annoyed because I thought we were hanging
out there for the evening since, like I said we had kinda had plans
and he changed them, etc. So...about 8:30 we went home. I took the
vacuum out of the box and put it together while he got a shower. When
he was done he said he forgot a tool at Ann's and since it was outside
he'd better got get it.
Now, this is Bill... always forgetting something, so I wasn't suspicious
at all. He left while I was trying out the vacuum. I did the living
room and figured I'd leave the kitchen to show him how it works (not
like he's ever going to volunteer and vacuum but, whatever)/ So I
left the kitchen undone and went into the bedroom to fold laundry.
A few minutes later he came back and we says "The rug looks good in
the livingroom but, ummm, you missed a spot in the kitchen!" I was
like, whatever....I didn't care, I was going to show him how the vacuum
worked. So as soon as I said whatever he comes through the doorway
between the bedroom and the kitchen, kinda trips and lands on his
knees in front of me. As I am asking if he's ok he goes, "Lucky you
didn't suck this up!" and holds up my engagement ring!!I like a true
blonde is just staring at him with my wouth wide open in shock. He
says, "Well, will you marry me?" I said yes yes yes and I was hugging
and kissing him and crying and after a few minutes he goes, "Ummmm,
are you going to put this on or am I gonna have to wear it?" And with
that I let him put the ring on my finger!
SOOOOO, Bill and I are officially engaged!
We will be married September 18th, 2004 on the grounds of the Scullville
Fire Hall in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey.
