WALKING BY HERSELF

The Roose family was a source of support after Eischens lost her dad, and for her special day in 2017, he was there for her again. Eischens wanted to ask him to walk her down the aisle, but something stopped her.

Roose's wife was in an accident and couldn't travel, so Eischens decided to walk down the aisle alone. She said: "When I knew Chris wouldn't be able to make it, I thought I'd just go by myself." However, her husband to be had other plans.
