Groom bids a full wedding band farewell to his firefighter bride who died in Beirut Blast
The 25-year-old, who has since been dubbed 'the bride of Beirut' on social media, was engaged to be married in June next year.
A female firefighter Sarah Faris, 25, who had been one of 10 firefighters, previously reported to be missing after Tuesday’s massive explosion in Beirut, was found and declared dead.
Among Sarah’s fellow colleagues from a rapid response team were three firefighters who were captured in a heartbreaking picture trying to break into a warehouse stuffed with 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate moments before it exploded.
The 25-year-old, who has since been dubbed ‘the bride of Beirut’ on social media, was engaged to be married in June next year.
Faris’s fiancé, Gilbert Karaan, posted a tribute saying, ‘You are my life. You burned my heart’.
In a moving tribute to his fiancée, Karaan wrote, ‘We were due to get married on the 6th of June 2021. You were decorating our house and buying furniture that you liked.
‘You were promoted too fast in your job, from a medic firefighter to a martyr. Our wedding date will remain the same. Everything you desired will be there, except me looking at you in your white gown.
‘You broke my back. I have lost the will to live since you have been gone. May whoever took you from me feel the same and have their hearts broken.
‘They robbed me of your beautiful smile and love. I love you, and I’ll always love you until we meet again and continue our journey together.’
The video showed Karaan bidding farewell to his late fiancée during the funeral ceremony, in which the civil defense teams participated in honor of their colleague.
Lebanese interacted with the touching story of Karaan and his fiancée. He received Sarah’s coffin and walked behind it as he cried, carrying her official suit she was wearing in the civil defense.
