I met a man named Jacob Kilby yesterday who is alive because of a heart transplant received from this brides son, Triston. Her son couldn’t be here for the wedding day but Becky’s groom Kelly Turney , surprised her by flying Jacob up to Alaska to stand in as a groomsmen, carrying Triston’s heart.
Kelly stopped the ceremony to introduce Jacob to Becky for the first time. Everyone was so moved by this and I had to share this amazing story. I had the pleasure of hearing Jacob share his gratitude and plans for a heart healthy life to Triston’s sister before the ceremony.
I am so blown away by his story and his amazing outlook on life. You couldn’t ask for a better recipient to receive such a gift.
