Babe, will you make me the happiest man alive and marry me?
I will name you David
My parents met at church in East Palo Alto, California. They started talking when my mom (Liz) seen my dad (Joe) sing on stage. They fell in love when they were singing together. My mom was 15 and my dad was 14 at the time.
They went on a vacation to Hawaii. My dad proposed to her on the beach in Honolulu, Hawaii after dating for 5 years. Of course she said yes or I wouldn't even be born!
I was born at Sequoia hospital in Redwood city. My grandmother and Dad were there when my mom gave birth. My grandmother (Dad's mom) named me after my grandfather (Mom's dad) because he never had a son named after him.
Growing up in East Palo Alto was rough because their were shootings and sounds of gunshots almost everyday. I had a lot of family who lived in East Palo Alto. We all went to the same church.
We moved to my Grandparents house in Newark because East Palo Alto was'nt safe to live in. I started school at Graham Elementary in Newark down the street from the house.
Growing up as a kid, my family always been into football. Every since I picked up a football I fell in love with it. I played football with my friends at Recess and was good at it.
