“I like to talk about him — to tell the world how great a man he was,” Kelly remarked. “He was a big part of my life, we were together for two-and-a-half years. When I first started, Andrew looked after me. We were there together, we had some good times and some hard times – he wanted more than anything to be healthy. I honestly could not say enough about him – he was the love of my life. Not a day goes by when I don’t think about Andrew. He was an amazing person who had so much love to give the world – he loved wrestling.”

The planning so far has been so great and easy maybe a little too easy… I just haven’t let myself get stressed about it I’ve just had fun with it. My wedding planner has been amazing. We actually just sent out the save the dates so I’m just taking things a day at a time and following a schedule of things that need to be done by a certain time and letting myself enjoy the process!” she told us, adding Sheldon has been helping a lot with planning too. “My fiancé has been helpful where the guys want to help which is picking the cake and finding his and the groomsmen tuxes.
