where is my mind?

These are my grandparents. My grandpa grew up on a farm near Santa Rosa during the great depression. He said he always had dreams of meeting a beautiful girl that lived on an island. During WWII, he was stationed at the US Naval Base on Guam. My grandmother was working at the local post office as a secretary. One day he walked in to mail a letter back home and saw her face. He said the dreams stopped, because he knew she was the one he had been looking for. After they got engaged, my great grandparents were so angry with my grandmother that they beat her and told her she could not marry this white man. She ignored them, for she knew he was her love regardless of his color.  They got married on August 19, 1950. They remained happily married for 42 years until my grandfather died, with his beautiful island girl right there by his side.
