A HEARTBROKEN boyfriend bought an engagement ring for his girlfriend after her shock death and then posted their engagement on Facebook.
Abigail Hall, 18, had just finished her first week of school studying biomedical science when she was found unconscious, The Star reports.
Her boyfriend, Josh Thompson, 22, was coaching tennis in Greece when he snuck away from a client dinner to Facetime his girlfriend.
However, it was a friend of Hall’s that answered and informed him that she had stopped breathing and had passed away.
Thompson said he immediately hopped on a flight back to the UK and bought an engagement ring on his way to seeing her.
“The plan was to do this next year after her first year at University,” he said. “She was the reason I would wake up in the morning,”
“She is my life. Words cannot express the love that I have for her,” he said. “There was no reason for Abbie to leave us — she had everything to live for. There’s no one else I would want to share my life with.”
An investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death is under way, but there are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances.
A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “Emergency services were called at around 7.35pm on Wednesday following the discovery of a body of an 18-year-old woman at a property in Shoreham Street, Sheffield.
“There are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances surrounding the death and officers are liaising with the coroner.”
Friends commented on the engagement news on Facebook in a post that has since been deleted.
Nina Andreia said: “I’m completely lost for words, this is an example of love. So beautiful.
“She would have loved that ring and it looks so beautiful on her delicate finger. Thinking of you and Abbie’s family in this hard time. Stay strong,” she said.
