Kelcie and Larry's Love Story...Grab the Kleenex...

by Charli McKenzie


Four years ago, Larry Ragsdale planned to propose to his high school sweetheart, Kelcie , during vacation with her family to Disneyland. But just a week before the trip, their lives were turned upside down. Larry's car was struck by a drunk driver, and he nearly lost his life. He was thrown into a coma, and for months, no one knew if he'd ever recover.

But Kelcie never gave up on him. She was by his side every day until, at long last, he awoke. He was left partially paralyzed from the accident; with a LONG road ahead of him D

In August, three years after coming out of the coma, Larry proposed to Kelcie with the same ring he'd chosen before that fateful night. But with their bank accounts drained from the arduous recovery, the wedding of their dreams (in Disneyland) seemed completely out of reach - until McKenzie launched a fundraising campaign and reached their goal of $20,000 in just 11 days!
