"A Philadelphia couple, honoring a deceased loved one, got married at his funeral, in a surprise ceremony that astonished 850 onlookers in the church.

The marriage of Reggie Wade, 39, and his bride, Monique McMillan-Wade, 29, took place this month at the funeral of Wade`s uncle, Gregory Chops Scott, who was shot to death Feb. 27."

I can`t think of a better way for Reggie Wade and his bride to honor his uncle than by getting married at his funeral.

The deceased Scott had promised to walk the bride down the aisle, and I`m convinced he kept his promise. Unfortunately, the technology doesn`t yet exist to capture a ghost walking a bride down the aisle.

The 850 onlookers left the church with hope in their hearts, knowing that even the death of a loved one, can`t keep us from living life to its fullest.

Life goes on...
