Forever (Continued from page 1) He felt that by getting married on Valentine's Day, he could really show how he felt for his bride-to-be. "What's the best way to tell someone vou love them." Con- over said. "For the last six years I've wanted to get married to her." Conover recalled the first day Spallone entered his life. "She just walked by my house with her kids," he said explaining that both of them formerly lived in Wilkes-Barre. "After that day, I kept seeing her walk by my house." And, Conover then was able to finally talk to her. "I made a point of it to be outside," he said. "The second day we talked I knew from the get-go that this was it." Once the couple decided to get married, they both chose the special day for Valentine's Day. "I wanted Valentine's Day because it's a sweetheart day," Spallone said. The day also was special for the couple because their children were part of the wedding. "Seven of our own children are in the wedding party," Spallone said. The bridal party consisted of Yvonne Synoraski, as the maid of honor; Anna Conover, Jennifer Grabowski, and Joanie Gaynor, as bridesmaids; and Gabriella Conover and Ashley Spallone, as flower girls. Groomsmen were John D. Conover III, Christopher Patrick Conover, Raymond Spallone, Jeremy Spallone, and Robert Eigenbrod, who served as best man. Family members were pleased with the couple's decision to get married, especially on Valentine's Day. "I think it's beautiful," Antoinette Schlack, Spallone's grandmother said. "I'm thrilled. I have seven grandchildren and seven great grandchildren and it's nice to see them get married." Her husband agreed. "I'm happy about it," Henry Schlack said. "I'm going to be walking her down the aisle." The Rev. Carol Vin-son-Lawfer, minister of the church and the one who married the couple, also felt the wedding was special. "It's the first wedding I've done on a Valentine's Day at this church," she said. "It's also the first Sunday wedding I've done here." Once the wedding was over, both newlyweds were happy. They hugged and kissed each other while waiting to greet their guests for the first time as husband and wife. "I feel great," Conover said. "We've waited a long time for this." Spallone also was happy and explained that her wedding was everything she expected it to be and more.
