Words cannot describe how I felt in that exact moment but let me try.. ❤️
This act of love is exactly how Gary would propose to me. On a day that was meant to be about him, he made it about us. Each of these photos shows all of the emotions I went through last night and thank you so much to everyone especially @skyeviewmedia for capturing these moments. I was shocked, I was surrounded by family and I was in Paris...hotel 🤣 ALL THE THINGS I WANTED and he didn’t even know it, but he did. Because he knows me. Thank you for reminding me of my value even when I cannot see it myself. You constantly show me my worth even in doubt. A girl only dreams about her future being shared with someone and I am so lucky to have someone by my side making conscious decisions just to make sure I’m happy. I love you so much...
I cannot believe I AM ENGAGED YALL! Wow.. not to mention BLING BLING 💍💍💍💍 you hit the jackpot. So did I 🤩🤩🤩 carry on....
To our dearest @zurigo_13 .
And to your lovely Father, may he now be resting in peace. Raphael is from a Swiss charity called @everydayjustasmile
The Everyday Just A Smile charity have helped PRGS on many levels over the years that we have been assisting displaced people in the streets. They have supported Paris monetarily by putting fantastic fundraising events on, doing donation drives, driving vans of donations 8 hours to Paris but most of all, they come here. They witnes. They feel it. And they keep coming back.
They come into the thick of the situation and bring light, skills, intelligence, hard work, compassion and creativity.
Last year when we were building the PRGS warehouse, Raphael brought his father to volunteer. Together they paid for and built the essential warehouse racking.
Very sadly, Raphael's dear father recently passed away after a hard battle with cancer.
At the funeral Raphael raised and donated €4000 to Paris Refugee Ground Support.
We're re truly overwhelmed by this enormous gesture of love and selflessness. Every time I think of this kind of love, it brings tears to my eyes.
To continue to give so beautifully at a time of such pain and loss, to keep others safe over the coming winter and beyond is a kindness I have not witnessed before.
It takes my breath away.
We have chosen to honor your father in the best way we know how.
We have donated the money to Utopia56 to buy a distribution van.
This is the absolute best thing we could buy to help as many people as possible, for as long as possible in the most effective possible way.
This van will carry yours and your father's care to thousands of people.
Please be at peace.
All the love to you, in this world and the next from @heather_prgs Heather, Kelvin, our team and all the lovely people at
