Lost my Fiance 3 weeks after we got engaged! Very tragically

by David K
(Toronto, Canada)

I'm 36, Candice was 34. I asked her to marry me after dating for 2 years. We went to New York and I surprised her on top of the empire state building on November 5th. We had 3 1/2 weeks of pure radiant glowing joy, she could not stop looking at her finger believing that she is engaged with such a beautiful ring from me. She died December 3rd so tragically. She was coming home from a Christmas work party (no spouses allowed) and was put into a taxi cab. Some how their was an altercation and an argument where she demanded to be let out of the taxi. *** They were on a very busy FREEWAY*** She was very scared and not of her mind, she was seen flagging down any car to let her in. A drunk driver car hit her, she died instantly. Then several other cars hit her. She was coming home to me. I spoke to her 10 minutes before she got into this taxi, she told me how much she loves me and misses me and will see me soon. I am so angry at this taxi as he is not being charged. She was scared for her life, demanding to be let out on the freeway and willing to enter any other car just to get away from the taxi. But the police have a drunk driver to blame and the taxi said he was frightened of her so he pulled over. But why? What happened in that taxi I'll never know. What did he say to my princess? She has a former model, beautiful women, never touched drugs, she had a few cocktails at the Christmas party as she was celebrating the engagement with her coworkers. We were due to start having children this June. We went to the fertility clinic and got each of us checked out. We wanted TWINS. Life was perfect, I met the best women ever to enter my life, I've never felt such pure love in my life, she worshiped me, Mothered me, she was truly my best friend and soul mate. We did everything together, spent every single moment with each other. In two years we had only 3 nights where we went out with friends without each other. All we ever wanted to do was be right beside each other. That's all we cared about because we were so in Love. Now I'm 36, single again and thrown into this single world I don't want to be here. I want to be a family man, I want to have my Candice back and have the family we were planning on a few short months away. Now I'm just lost. I love you Candice you will forever be in my heart. I pray for you everyday and talk to you and God until I see you again. Love you my sweetheart. I can't live without you right now.

Judith I am sorry for your loss as well. This is such difficult times for the loved ones that are left behind to grieve.

I am waiting for the police report. I am hoping there will be answers in this report.

David, my heart goes out to you. So very tragic indeed. If there were a way to find out exactly what happened and what was said on that night. You need answers your questions. I would insist on a meeting with the police and the taxi driver and make him explain all that transpired in those minutes before she left his cab. Maybe while she was out someone slipped something in a drink of hers and it made her react funny. You never know what garbage is out there waiting to do harm to a beautiful young lady. It's just a thought.

It is going to be the hardest thing you'll ever do to go through this grieving journey my dear. it is a horrible roller coaster ride of emotions . I pray God gives you the strength to get to the other side of this. IT will take time and you must do it one minute, one breath at a time. There is no set time limit or a book on how to grieve. you do it your way for how ever long it takes.

Come here often and read of us who have gone before you. It will help you and we are here to help when you need us.

It's been 15 months today since my love passed.
