There’s very little that can cure the hurt of losing someone close to your heart, more so if it is someone you have planned to spend the rest of your life with. While some choose to distract themselves from the pain by getting busy with work, others try to find ways to keep their memory alive.
There are also a few who are strong enough to acknowledge the loss in their own unique way. And a young woman grieving the de*th of her fiancé who found a special way to do just that.
On the day she was supposed to be marrying the man of her dreams, Jessica Padgett got down on her knees in her wedding dress and wept as she touched her forehead to his headstone in a local cemetery.
She wanted to honor what was supposed to be a joyous day with her late fiance, Kendall Murphy, 27, a volunteer firefighter who was lost his life last November by a suspected drunk driver.
Murphy was responding to a car crash on a rural road in southern Indiana on Nov. 10 when he was struck and lost his life in a collision caused by a fellow firefighter arriving on the scene, The Indianapolis Star reported.
Murphy suddenly left his life, making his family and friends shocked and more so for Padgett who had been planning her future with her fiancé in mind. 10 months after the tragic loss, she decided to don her wedding dress on the day she had planned to wear it, and braved the occasion in his honor.
