On her wedding day, Becky heard something she thought she would never hear again: her son’s beating heart. Becky’s son Triston passed away two years before her wedding and donated his heart to Jacob Kilby. When planning the wedding, Kelly tracked down Jacob and his family, inviting him to the wedding to finally meet Becky. “I was provided the opportunity to hear his heart beat that day; it was nothing short of amazing!” says Becky. Other aspects of the day that made it truly special for the family was getting married out on the pasture, alongside cows like on the farm Becky grew up on. Kelly was brought back to his childhood, too: After Becky smashed cake in his face, Kelly’s mom spat on her napkin to wipe cake off Kelly’s face. From tears to laughter, the day was full of beautiful, raw emotion.
