- Boyfriend proposes to his girlfriend even after she died
- He confesses his love through a heartfelt post on social media
- The cause of the young woman’s death is still unknown
Even if unexpected death separated them, it did not stop a man to express his love as he proposed to his girlfriend and posted a picture of the engagement ring on her finger on Facebook.
The 18-year-old girl named Abigail Hall collapsed and died on Wednesday after less than a week of studying biomedical services at Sheffield Hallam University, said Nina Golgowski of Daily News.
Her boyfriend, Josh Thompson, who was at the time coaching tennis in Greece, tried to call Abigail but a friend answered instead. That’s when he heard about the sudden death of his long-distance girlfriend.
He immediately bought a ticket back home, went to Abigail’s home and later, went with a friend to buy an engagement ring.
Thompson has asked the parents of Abigail if he could put a ring on her finger and announced they were engaged. He wrote: “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,” he added.
The devastated Thompson recalled how he fell in love with Abigail. He said everything they did together felt real and that she would always be there for him.
Thompson said he was planning to propose after Abigail’s first year at the university.
He went on to share their plans together: “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.”
South Yorkshire Police, according to a report by Nicola Harvey of Telegraph, said they have received emergency services call at around 7:35 pm on Wednesday after the discovery of a body of an 18-year-old woman at a property in Sheffield. They added there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of Abigail.
