Roy man enlists help for Sky Ride marriage proposal at Lagoon

Kurt Adams, 25, of Roy, arranged to have patrons of Lagoon amusement park’s Sky Ride hold signs reading “Susan will you marry me?” so he could propose to his girlfriend of nine months, Susan Hamilton, of Loa, on Saturday. It took Adams two weeks to coordinate the proposal, recorded by his parents, who were riding in the chairlift behind them. Susan accepted, and they kissed. Kurt says he was relieved the proposal was a success, because Susan turned to him to discuss the coincidence of her name on the first sign and almost missed the following sign.
