From Tragedy, Comes Love

Get your tissues ready.  One of the Boston Marathon bombing survivors proposed to his girlfriend last week in Lyon, France. So who was the lucky lady? A rehab nurse whom he met while recovering at Spaulding Hospital in Boston. James Costello met nurse Krista D’Agostino when her traveling nurse stint happened to coincide with his stay. After sharing a few conversations and inviting her to a benefit with him, the two became inseparable and their love story blossomed. On a recent cruise for survivors, the pair got engaged. Costello wrote on his Facebook page, “I now realized why I was involved in the tragedy. It was to meet my best friend, and the love of my life.”
