Happier Days Ahead for the Whites

Mike and Sherry White have dedicated their free time to their Grandchildren, Mariah 6 and Matthew 4. Weekends include working, maintaining a home, taking care of 6 pets. The weekends for this middle aged couple are fast paced with 2 active children joining them for activities. Sherry has been teaching Mariah and Matthew how to swim at the River Plex, skating with them at Owens Center, watching plays at Eastlight. Mike watches kids' programs, makes homemade meals, takes them to childrens' parks, and supervises their play. Sherry broke 3 bones in her left ankle ice skating on February 1 while Mike was at a Superbowl party. Missing one of the best games ever, Mike came to the hospital to hear about Sherry's ankle. A few days later following surgery, the Whites did not miss a weekend spending time with their Grandchildren. If Mike and Sherry were selected for the Carribean getaway, it would be an opportunity for them to relax, recharge, and rekindle their marriage of 16 years. Spending time in the Carribean would give them a new perspective on their lives, marriage, and taking life at a slower pace. If you think Mike and Sherry need to slow down, please vote for them.

What deserving people. It seems they have neglected themselves for the sake of the grandchildren. Grandparents are a forgotten commodity in todays world. We need to count our blessings for having Mike and Sherry in the world.

1 more vote for Mike/Sherry. Mike has worked outside this EXTREMELY cold winter and DESERVES the warm, sunny climate of the Carribean. Sherry with a broken ankle yet STILL spending time with her grandkids AND working full time. Hope you two win!

we vote for Mike/Sherry. What dedicated grandparents they must be. Children that age are a challenge for younger parents and require a lot of attention. How unselfish that Mike and Sherry are willing to devote so much of their time and energy!
