If you ever wonder if romance is still alive, you need to meet Dennis Cruz from Patterson. On Good Friday when his girlfriend, Lindsay Silvia of Oakdale, opened the front door to go outside, there stood a horse drawn carriage, with Dennis waiting for her. After telling her how much she meant to him, he got down on one knee and proposed. With all of her family, and even some neighbors looking on, happily Lindsay said yes. They then took the horse-drawn carriage for a ride along Highway 108 to a restaurant for a romantic dinner.
