Newlywed Latter-day Saint Couple Die in Crash, Wife Shared Touching Testimony of Eternal Families Days Before

Days after writing a touching post about her wedding and eternal marriage, newlywed Latter-day Saint Amy Moffat and her husband, Stephen Graham, passed away in a tragic car accident.

The couple from Utah was driving on the freeway in southern Washington when their pickup truck rolled. Both were pronounced dead on the scene. 

In a touching Facebook post days before the crash, Moffat shared her testimony and plans to one day be sealed in the temple to her husband. She wrote:

"This weekend I felt like the luckiest girl in the world.

"I haven’t had the chance to share a lot of the details of Stephen Graham and my engagement. For a few reasons, Stephen and I decided to be married in an intimate civil ceremony with our immediate families, just beneath the peaks of Utah’s Wasatch mountains. Beside a babbling summer creek, Stephen and I, in joyful disbelief, united our lives together and became husband and wife.

"I can’t tell you how much I love this man. I’ve never felt more loved, or have been treated more like a queen, than by anyone else in my life. Stephen is more than I could’ve ever asked for in a partner, in a lover, in a best friend.

"For now our marriage is until death do us part. But soon enough we can go to a temple of God and have our marriage sealed for eternity. 

"Stephen, I feel like the luckiest girl alive. Thank you for each and every crazy, beautiful, and crazy beautiful moment we have shared up until this point. I can’t wait to see what adventures lie ahead of us."

After the couple passed away, many took to Facebook sharing touching comments on what would become Moffat's last Facebook post. 

"I don't personally know you all, but my heart goes out to each and every one of you. Sending my prayers to the families and friends of Amy and Stephen in this time of unspeakable loss," one wrote.

"There are just no words...

"I'm so sorry and saddened by this. We can't even began to understand such a horrendous loss.

"God bless this family give them the lease and comfort they need to survive this terrible tragedy. Amen," another wrote.

"Knowing that they had accepted Christ as their personal savior is a huge blessing in itself. Rest assured they are happy and together for eternity. God Bless the family and friends that are left behind," another shared. 

Our hearts go out to the families of the Graham and Moffat and our prayers are with them at this time.
