In 2007, Grace started working at Pacific Pathology Inc. during her college years and met Melvin. They became friends and began to spend time outside of work. Dinner and a movie was typical, but the occasional snowboarding trip was a fun activity they enjoyed. Eventually, that friendship blossomed into something greater and they became each others plus one.
Fast forward to 2015. It was at this time when Grace and Melvin embarked on a journey to see one of the most beautiful places in America. Off to Alaska they went on a 10 day cruise. It was on this cruise where Melvin planned to ask for Grace’s hand in marriage. Melvin knew that Grace didn’t want a big crowd, but to have an intimate moment where they both can treasure together. While on the way to dinner, Melvin took Grace outside on the deck to look at the setting sun. While she stared into the sunset, Melvin got on one knee and proposed. Melvin said some things which made her smile and she said YES!!!
