The retired Navy veteran died in a tragic trucking accident in Oklahoma in February 2016. The couple had only been married for five years and had a young child together.
But on the day of Brian's wake, she received incredible news that made the awful day more bearable. She was pregnant! The couple had been trying to have another baby before he passed. And she was joyous to grab her late husband's hand at the funeral and tell him herself before he was laid to rest.
But Courtney was in for even more joy than she could have possibly imagined.
Weeks after the funeral, she began having complications that scared her family. They thought she was in danger of losing the baby.
But then, Courtney shared the happy news with them that she was having TRIPLETS.
While she is still grieving the loss of her husband, she is grateful for the new legacy she's been blessed with.
"I’m excited to have three more smiles that remind me of him," said Courtney.
