Ohio father dies after giving away bride from gurney
CLEVELAND (AP) - An Ohio cancer patient has died less than three weeks after attending his daughter's wedding on a gurney to fulfill his promise to walk her down the aisle.
A spokesman for University Hospitals in Cleveland says 56-year-old Scott Nagy died at the hospital Monday.
The terminally ill Brunswick man wore a tuxedo and arrived by ambulance for his daughter Sarah's Oct. 12 church wedding in Strongsville. Guests cried and clapped as the pair made their way down the aisle with help from a volunteer team of medical professionals.
The Plain Dealer reported that from the gurney, Nagy gave away the 24-year-old bride, and when she burst into tears, he reminded her not to streak her makeup.
Nagy was diagnosed last year with urethral cancer and had been hospitalized for months.
Ohio man pops the question with pumpkins
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - A Dayton man got into the Halloween spirit in crafting a clever marriage proposal for his girlfriend.
Zach Stoddard used five carved pumpkins strategically placed on the side of a hill to pop the question to his girlfriend of three years, Lauren Brenneman. When the illuminated pumpkins were uncovered, they showed the words "Will You Marry Me?"
Brenneman said "yes," much to the delight of the hundreds of people gathered for a popular neighborhood event called the Stoddard Avenue Pumpkin Glow.
Organizers told The Dayton Daily News that the proposal was a first for the annual event, which features hundreds of carved pumpkins lighting up the night. It ended Thursday night.
