Blast victim now engaged to nurse

James Costello was one of the runners horribly injured in the Boston Marathon bombing last April. His body was so badly burned that he needed pig skin grafts on most of his right arm and right leg. After multiple surgeries he was transferred to a rehabilitation center. He says, "I soon wondered why and for what reason this had happened."

Perhaps it was because of what happened next.

"A few days later I saw a nurse in passing, this would turn out to be Krista, who had shared a few mutual friends, but we had never crossed paths before," Costello, known to his friends as "Bim," wrote about nurse Krista D'Agostino.

"After sharing a handful of conversations I realized not only how beautiful she was but also what a kind heart she had. I somehow convinced her to attend a benefit with me, which turned into a few dates, which turned into a few inseparable months," wrote Costello.

Costello and D'Agostino are spending part of December in Europe with other victims and first responders on an all-expenses-paid "Heroes Cruise." In the French city of Lyon, Costello popped the question.

"I'm happy to announce that we will spend the rest of our lives together. I now realized why I was involved in the tragedy. It was to meet my best friend, and the love of my life."
