FaceBook photo of the coupleFor James “Bim” Costello, April 15th was one of the worst days of his life. At the finish line of the Boston Marathon when the bomb exploded, he suffered not only physical wounds but emotional trauma, after learning about his friends and their injuries.

“I soon wondered why and for what reason this had happened,” he wrote in a Facebook post this week.

Recovering in Spaulding Hospital, and still wondering what good could come from the tragedy, he met a nurse named Krista.

“After sharing a handful of conversations I realized not only how beautiful she was but also what a kind heart she had (and) somehow convinced her to attend a benefit with me,” Costello wrote.

After a few “inseparable months” he realized the silver lining of his involvement in the tragedy eights months ago: “It was to meet my best friend, and the love of my life.”

“We got engaged last night in the middle of the beautiful French city Lyon!!!”
