Mary Hall and her fiancé Chuck Nees were preparing for the most important day of their lives – the wedding.
They had everything planned in advance. But one day they received an unusual package that changed the course of their celebration.
Mary returned home after work and saw that there was a package on the kitchen table with the name of the sender on it.
This name was not familiar to Mary and her fiancé. Young people puzzled over who these senders were, and what exactly they sent them on the eve of the wedding.
They opened the package, which revealed a letter and glasses with the names of Mary and Chuck.
The glasses greatly surprised the bride and groom. But when they read the letter, its contents left them in a state of shock.
When Chuck began to read the letter that he and his fiancée received from strangers, Mary’s skin ran cold. And by the end of the letter, she could not hold back her tears.
The letter and glasses were sent to them by people whose parents had the same name as the heroes of this story – Mary and Charles (Chuck).
The children of an unfamiliar couple said that they did not know the future newlyweds. They found the address of the bride and groom through the registry of wedding gifts.
Strangers immediately decided to send them glasses as a present, which used to belong to their late parents.
The letter further stated that the parents of the senders of the glasses were in a very happy marriage for 62 years. They loved each other very much and always took care of each other.
Their names were Chuck (Charles) and Mary Felker. And they were very sociable people who enjoyed universal respect and love.
The spouses had many friends. And they often hosted guests, arranging friendly gatherings and fun parties.
Most of all, the Felkers loved to dance. And they turned this hobby into a job, because both were ballroom dance teachers.
After their parents left, Chuck and Mary Felker’s children decided to give their wedding glasses as a gift to a couple with the same names as their mother and father.
They sincerely believe that glasses will bring good luck to young people and make their marriage strong and long.
Taking out glasses with names engraved on them, Chuck hugged Mary, moved to tears, and said: “Mary, let me dance with you forever.”
As it turned out, these were not all surprises.
The glasses were packed in a sneaker box. And Mary saw this as a good sign. Because she and her friends decided that on the wedding day they would not suffer in high-heeled shoes, but would wear sneakers.
It was indeed a sign of fate. Mary decided, that would bring good luck to her marriage to Chuck.
Young people intend to someday meet the children of Chuck and Mary Felker, and personally thank them for the glasses.
And besides, when they grow old, they want to make the same surprise for a young couple with their names.
