My grandfather was a Pearl Harbor survivor, and the best man I ever knew. He was kind and strong, brave and gentle. One year, he returned to Pearl Harbor for an anniversary celebration with his wife. They woke up in their hotel room one morning and he told her he was going down to the local market to get some fruit for breakfast.
At the market, he picked out some bananas, pineapples, oranges, and a loaf of bread. He approached the clerk to pay for his groceries, and the clerk, a young 18-year-old, said, "I'm sorry, sir, but I can't take your money." My grandfather was offended by this and questioned him. "Why can't you take my money? I just want to buy some groceries." The clerk went on to explain that his supervisor informed all of the employees in the store that they are not to take any money from any of the Pearl Harbor survivors who were visiting that week. All of the groceries were free, and it was their way of thanking the Survivors for their service and bravery.
My grandfather passed away on December 31, 2007. He died just as he lived - peacefully and quietly.
Now it is my turn to honor him. If you are active military, and facing deployment, and want to marry your loved one before you leave, I will officiate your wedding for free, minus gas for travel. It is my way of saying thank you, and for paying back my grandfather for the honorable service gave to our country.
