The story of the funeral held to look like a wedding has a powerful back story.

US man's tears for his beautiful Thai fiancee: It should have been a wedding but drink driving made it a funeral | News by Samui TimesJust days before the death of Atita “Namwan”, 24, her loving boyfriend Derrick Gibson from Illinois had proposed marriage and been accepted.

Hundreds online had offered their congratulations to the handsome couple.

But on April 28th – six days after the proposal – a drunk driver went into the back of Namwan in Ayuthaya as she rode her motorcycle.

Namwan suffered head trauma and multiple broken limbs.

Police have arrested Phubet, 26, who had 87 miligrams of alcohol in his system – over the limit.

A funeral in the manner of a wedding was hastily arranged for the family and was attended by Derrick. His Facebook page says he is “engaged to Namwan Atita”. He comes from Jerseyville, Illinois.

At the funeral with an open casket he poured lustral water in the manner of a Thai wedding rather than in the manner of bathing rites at a Thai funeral.

The couple planned to marry in October before the drunk driver shattered their dreams.
