Twenty-two years ago, Matt, a marine, was trying to get back home. He called American Airlines and fell in love with the voice on the other end... Dyanne.

And so their love story began. They had three beautiful girls.

Their story is one that teaches us to touch, to kiss, to tell the person you love that you love them. 

For the Barnes family, it's a day at the beach, but those days are numbered.
