Larissa Murphy has shared a wedding video documenting her love story with a man she got engaged to, only to watch him suffer a traumatic brain injury.
The couple's touching love story from 2010 has gone viral and is inspiring in the story it tells of love, commitment and compassion triumphing over all.
Larissa and Ian met in college, dated for 10 months and were planning to get married when their lives were changed forever by a tragic 2006 car crash.
"We watched our future crash with him in that white station wagon," she writes on desiringgod.org of the brain injury that left him unable to talk or eat.
"I still don't think Ian would have ever left me if the role had been reversed," she writes. "And walking away from my best friend was never truly an option."
As Ian's condition slowly improved, and he regained some speech, and the wedding plans that had been put aside for years became feasible again.
