A mother of two children who grieved for the past six years after losing her husband in the MH370 disaster, found love again and remarried.
Danica Weeks, from Noosa on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, admits she thought she would stay alone and her boys, Lincoln and Jack, would grow up without a father until she met builder John Crinion.
Mrs. Weeks and Mr. Crinion, 44, got married on Saturday at a ceremony on the Sunshine Coast with Lincoln, nine, and Jack, six, by her side.
Friends and family attended the private ceremony from as far away as Hawaii to celebrate the joyful day with the couple.

Mrs. Weeks’ first husband and father of her two boys, Paul Weeks (photo), was on flight MH370 when it disappeared in 2014.
“To find love, you know, some people don’t find it the first time and I’ve been lucky to find it a second,” a radiant Mrs. Weeks told Sky News.
Lincoln played “Here Comes the Bride” on the piano while Jack was the ring bearer for the vows, reports The courier post.
The couple met about three years ago on dating site eHarmony and got engaged in late 2019 when Mr. Crinion got a knee on a whim while the couple was on a beach and presented with a shell.
When they met, Danica had moved from Perth back to the Sunshine Coast to make contact with old friends.
Danica’s first husband Paul Weeks tragically disappeared on March 8, 2014 when he boarded the ill-fated Malaysian flight to China and left Danica and her family desperate.
MH370 last communicated with air traffic control about 38 minutes after takeoff when the flight was over the South China Sea and was never seen or heard again.
Satellite pings followed the plane on its way south for six hours after turning the intended destination and emergency beacons were not activated by the crew.
The 227 passengers and 12 crew members on board are supposed to be dead but the wreck of the aircraft was never found despite the most expensive search in aviation history that was carried out.

The joint international search was suspended in 2017 and a second private search was canceled in 2018.
Despite the fact that several pieces are wreckage of the plane that washes up in the Indian Ocean, the fate of the plane remains one of the greatest mysteries in aviation history.
Mrs. Weeks has previously campaigned for both Australian and international governments to continue the search for the aircraft.
Mr. Crinion said he had found out what Mrs. Week had been through on their first date, but instead of postponing him, he became intrigued how a person could go through such a tragedy and still smiled.
“And that brought me great admiration for that purpose and a great need to meet the boys and find out who they were and see what happens in Mrs. Weeks’ world,” he said.
After seeing John and her boys play on the beach, she says she felt the wall she had built during her six years of doubt and the suffering began to crumble.
‘I am a different person, a very, very different person. Sometimes I pinch myself and think “Gee who was that girl before?” I see a future. And that’s something I haven’t had for six years, “she said.
Crinion says he is well aware that he now bears responsibility for raising Lincoln and Jack, and says he is focused on raising them in a difficult world with 100 percent support.
