What started out as the happiest day of their lives, ended in almost unbelievable tragedy. Newlyweds Stephen Graham, 30, and Amy Moffat, 28, had just said their ‘I dos’ barely two weeks prior when they were finally on their way to their honeymoon. What started out as the beginning of a beautiful future turned into their families’ worst nightmare.
According to the Spokesman-Review, “Moffat, who police listed as a resident of Provo, Utah, was driving the pickup west. She was 6 miles east of Prosser, Washington, about 7:30 p.m. Sunday, according to the Washington State Patrol.
“Officials believe she fell asleep and the Ford F150 pickup drifted to the left. She overcorrected and the pickup rolled, according to police reports. Tragically, both Moffat and her new husband died at the crash scene. They were wearing seatbelts."
The bride had recently posted to her Facebook page how lucky she felt to have finally married the man of her dreams.
“This weekend I felt like the luckiest girl in the world.
“I haven’t had the chance to share a lot of the details of Stephen Graham and my engagement. For a few reasons, Stephen and I decided to be married in an intimate civil ceremony with our immediate families, just beneath the peaks of Utah’s Wasatch mountains.
"Beside a babbling summer creek, Stephen and I, in joyful disbelief, united our lives together and became husband and wife.
“I can’t tell you how much I love this man. I’ve never felt more loved, or have been treated more like a queen, than by anyone else in my life. Stephen is more than I could’ve ever asked for in a partner, in a lover, in a best friend.
“For now our marriage is until death do us part. But soon enough we can go to a temple of God and have our marriage sealed for eternity.”
Then she spoke directly to her new husband, thanking him for her love and pointing to the bright future she saw for them:
“Stephen, I feel like the luckiest girl alive. Thank you for each and every crazy, beautiful, and crazy beautiful moment we have shared up until this point. I can’t wait to see what adventures lie ahead of us."
Moffat worked as a nutritional therapy practitioner, The Spokesman-Review reported. Graham was a photographer, videographer, and editor.
A good friend of the couple who was traveling behind them on the drive, wrote, “Shakespeare couldn't have written this story,” Spencer Luczak told Fox 13 Now, “Luczak said he ran to the truck after the crash, but when he ‘knew they were gone.’
“I watched them live together, I watched them ride bikes together, smile together, and laugh, and I watched them die together, but they went hand in hand through the veil and that gives me reassurance that they're still together,” Luczak told Fox 13.
Please join us in praying for Amy and Stephen's families as they deal with the devastating loss of their precious loved ones. We wish them peace, comfort, and love in the difficult days ahead.
