RICHARD Butler and his girlfriend, Bethany Lott, are stood in the mountains of North Carolina. On Max Patch Bald, near Asheville. Mr Butler is ready to propose…marriage. The couple from Knoxville, Tennessee, will be one.

Then lightning bears down. She is killed. He suffers third degree burns. Says Butler to the Ashville Citizen Times:

“I was spun 180 degrees and thrown several feet back. My legs turned to Jello. My shoes were smoking and the bottom of my feet felt like they were on fire.”

Adding:

“Her last words were: ‘Look at how beautiful it is.'”

File under: tough love.
