    UT - Bride dies in her sleep on Wedding night

    Doug Goodall married Jennifer Ann Bennett, the love of his life, last weekend--two days before Christmas. But their wedding night was their last night together.

    Doug Goodall, Groom: "And then I woke up in the morning, and she didn't." His bride died in her sleep the morning before Christmas. Jennifer had battled with drugs, even served time in prison, but she had turned her life around and was now starting a new one. But, that didn't last long. It was a peaceful ending to a life of struggle.

    Oh how sad!

    I see that toxocology reports will take 12 weeks to come back. If she was clean, her death was probably caused by all those years of taking extreme amounts of all kinds of drugs and the damage already done to her body.

    How sad. Sounds like she was finally getting her life together. God bless her husband's family and Jennifer's family.

    Yes, it's sad. But just think how many marriages would be better if they had ended this way...

    How enigmatic! Maybe she was told she had hours, perhaps days left to live, and so they married? That has happened before. It almost seems like she had been in hospice care? That is the feel I get, that she was terminally ill with something.

    ETA: The entries on the memorial guest book mention suicide, so perhaps she was a suicide?

    There is another thread somewhere on this forum. She had been heavily into all kinds of drugs earlier in her life and had been clean for years. She gave talks to teenagers about the dangers of drugs.

    I think this was unexpected but possibly a result of damage to her body from all of her previous drug use. Toxocology reports won't be back for 12 weeks.

    <It was a peaceful ending to a not so peaceful life. At 12 years old Jennifer started using drugs, and it only got worse.

    Doug Goodall: "She used everything that you could think of, and used incredible amounts of everything, every day.">


    and then it catches up with you.
    but geez, i was surprised to read she was only 25. at least she was able to spread a positive message about where she went wrong... hopefully some young kids will remember that.

    At the very least, this man gets to have the love of his life in his memory forever as the love of his life. He wasn't married long enough to lose the infatuation, have her nag him, perhaps see her relapse and crush his spirit. In some ways, it's beautiful that she could go out on such a high note. Very few people can die happy in their sleep. We all die. She went out the way I want to. Loved, and asleep.
    FUN... is a renewable resource!
