EASTCHESTER, N.Y. -- We asked for stories on how you met your Valentine and got this one from Eastchester resident StacyAnn Melillo-Keiler:

"I met my husband David on June 7, 2001 at Piranha Pats in Larchmont, now Rio Bravo. We happened to sit next to each other at the bar. I was there with a friend. He was there with his sister.

"We started talking about the hockey game that was on TV. I didn't really think anything of it because I thought his sister was maybe his girlfriend -- they look nothing alike -- until his sister turns to me and says 'Hi my name is Stacey, I am David's sister.' (Yes we have the same name. LOL)

"My whole body language changed at that point. As we were talking, we came to realize we were both from New Rochelle and both went to New Rochelle High School. I graduated in 1992. David graduated in 1990. We never met. He knew some of my friends and I knew many of his. Small world.

"We started dating and moved in together in December 2002,. We got engaged in April 2004, and married October 9, 2004 at Beckwith Point In New Rochelle.

"We now live in Eastchester with our three kids. Zachary 15, from my previous relationship, Samantha 9 and Jaxon 5."
