Ms. Digby said that the young couple (in the photo) met in the marina and that their relationship moved quickly
"Luke and I met in the marina, we were in the same boat together, things went very, very fast," he said.
& # 39; When this happened, it broke all my life. I lived here only at that moment, so I had to take my parents by plane from Sunny Coast to identify their body.
"I had to pick up his belongings from the police station from which he had an engagement ring receipt … it has been very, very painful."
After Mr. Bray's death in February, Ms. Digby shared the harrowing story of the engagement ring on her Instagram page.
"When it came time to identify your body and collect your belongings, they realized something incredibly special in your wallet," he wrote.
"In his wallet was a receipt of a beautiful Halo engagement ring from Armans Jewelery."

Ms. Digby participated in a contest published by Armans Jewelery in hopes of winning a ring.
"We had always talked about the day we would meet in the hall and I would not like anything more than to fulfill his dream," he wrote.
& # 39; Winning this competition would complete me and our aspirations to commit, since he was so desperate and worked so hard to make it happen. & # 39;
The reports indicate that Mr. Bray was killed by the current that entered the house through illegal wiring, even though the power was disconnected in the electrical network.
