A guy allegedly got engaged to his girlfriend just after she passed away. Abigail Hall‘s sudden death was disclosed to her boyfriend Josh Thompson while he was working as a tennis coach in the Greek island of Corfu.
He, in no time, flew home to her family in Doncaster and asked for their permission to propose to the deceased.
Dailymail tells the story, they agreed to the unusual step and he bought her an engagement ring. He then popped the question privately, placing the wedding band over the 18-year-old’s finger and posting a photograph on Facebook (left) with the heartbreaking message:
Abigail Hall and I are now engaged. She is my life..Words cannot express the love that I have for her, she was the reason I would wake up in the morning. ‘We connected so well, from the moment she tripped on an escalator in the Shard after one too many, to having the most hilarious sunburn after driving through France with the roof down.
‘Everything we did felt real, she would always be there with a smile on her face, and she could never do enough for me.’Yesterday myself and Joshua Hall went to select an engagement ring for Abbie, the plan was to do this next year after her first year at University.’Josh chose well and I was able to have my moment with Abbs which I was so grateful for.
‘Thank you to everyone for the support you have given Abbie’s family and myself. Life will never be the same again, we need to continue to support each other.’There was no reason for Abbie to leave us. She had everything to live for. We had plans for Turkey, Dubai and then Paris for New Years Eve.’There’s no one else I would want to share my life with. I love you Panda. I will always love you baby.
Abigail, from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, had only just started at Sheffield Hallam University where she was studying biomedical sciences.
She was found by friends in her flat in Sheffield on Wednesday night. Police say there are no suspicious circumstances around her death.
Devastated friends spoke of their shock on social media, adding how moved they were by Josh’s gesture.
