The pastor, who was presiding over the service, had asked for the woman’s hand in order to help heal her broken heart.
It was like drama and confusion when a South African pastor who was presiding funeral service proposed to a grieving woman in the middle of her father’s funeral — mere feet from the deceased’s coffin.
According to a video circulated on Social media, the pastor, who was presiding over the service, had asked for the woman’s hand in order to help heal her broken heart.
In the video clip, the deceased’s unnamed daughter is seen sobbing in the front row near her father’s casket. Then, all of a sudden, the suitor kneels in front of the bereaved gal with a microphone and pops the question, causing the other mourners to cry out in shock.
“This here is WRONG..No matter how you can try and justify it,” said one commenter.
The clip ends with the pastor putting a ring on his bride-to-be’s finger, which she appears to accept.
He also said that he hoped his proposal would help her come to terms with her father’s passing.
