After a fairy-tale wedding on a family ranch, a perfect day came to a tragic end. Family and friends are still trying to cope with the helicopter crash that ended the lives of newlyweds Will Byler and Bailee Ackerman.


The young couple, both seniors at Sam Houston State University, died when the helicopter they used to fly to their honeymoon crashed 100 miles east in San Antonio. The pilot, Gerald Douglas Lawrence, also perished in the accident. Investigators have not yet determined the cause of the crash.

Now, those who loved the couple are trying to work through the shock and pain after such a tragedy.

Hours after saying 'I do,' newlyweds killed in helicopter crash youtu.be

Bridesmaid Madey Pipkin left a tribute to Ackerman on Facebook.

She wrote in the moving post:
"In the past five days I have been part of the most beautiful wedding I have ever witnessed to the most heart wrenching tragedy I can imagine. I've been with both families throughout and can honestly say the only thing that carries everyone through is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Both families have such incredible faith and Will and Bailee shared their love of our Lord. There have been so many signs of God"s presence through this. This photo was taken with my phone when they were braiding their unity cord. The three strands symbolizing Will, Bailee, and their bond being fortified with God. A cord of three strands is not easily broken. Ecc. 4:12. It"s obvious to see Them surrounded in God"s glory in this photo. Angels really do walk among us. Please let their lives be a testimony to us all to love and walk with the Lord as it could be our last. We will love you forever Will and Bailee Rae. Enjoy your forever honeymoon. 💕"

Pipkin shared beautiful photos from the day.

There are no words for the sadness the family and friends must be feeling.

The story has touched so many hearts.













Our hearts are with the family and friends of all three victims.

There's no shortage of excellent horror fiction out there. Recently I read The Terror by Dan Simmons and can't remember the last time I felt that claustrophobic and nervous. But I am also a fan of quite a few classics. Are there any other horror books that capture grief as effectively as Stephen King's Pet Sematary? What other book evokes folk horror as beautifully as Thomas Tryon's Harvest Home? Let's not forget this wonderful classic: The Haunting of Hill House. I could rave about that one (and Shirley Jackson) for days. All of these books left their mark on me and yes, I'd include them on a list (if I were to make one) of some of the scariest books I've read.

People had their own opinions to share––and books to recommend––after Redditor Tylerisdumber asked the online community,
