"They originally got married in an electronics store, because they were too poor to afford a proper wedding," their 21-year-old son, Jeffrey Agan Jr, told BuzzFeed. "They fought, separated, divorced, and it tore the family apart. Each of us felt like we had to cope with the destruction in different ways, and on our own."

"Things were hard, tight, and tough for us as a family, but we never went hungry and they’ve spent so much time trying to dig us out of the dirt. They’ve invested in our success and our futures at the expense of their own wants and needs. I’ve made a Gofundme in response to requests to create one, so people can contribute to their wedding. I’m blown away by the support!"

"My family is all very happy and overwhelmed with love right now," Jeffrey Jr. said. "A family torn apart made whole again!"
