On Wednesday evening, Melissa Ott, the fiancée of slain WDBJ cameraman Adam Ward, shared a message on Facebook expressing her grief following the horrific event that took place earlier that day, when Ward and colleague Alison Parker were killed on live TV.
"Today, my entire world was flipped upside down," she wrote. "Starting new adventures with my fiance, new jobs, a new city. Getting married, having a family, buying a home. Thats now taken. Im not ok. And I wont be for a long time. But the enormous outpour of love and support from so many of you near and far is so much appreciated."
Ott worked for the same station as Ward, and Wednesday was her last day on the job as she prepared to move on to those "new adventures."
WDBJ anchor Jean Jadhon revealed on Twitter Wednesday that Ott's wedding gown arrived hours after the shooting.
In her Facebook post, Ott addressed Ward directly, sharing her thoughts for him now.
"Adam, I will never find a man so happy, selfless, protective, funny, or charming like you," she added. "You were the one. You understood me. My soulmate. I will always love you. Please watch over me and keep me strong."
Ott closed with one final message to Ward.
"Enjoy the endless tech games in your heaven. I love you so much ♡"
