On tonight’s episode of The Bachelor, contestant Kelsey Poe opens up about her husband Sanderson’s death. Sanderson passed away suddenly in May 2013 at the age of 42 while he was walking to work. He collapsed suddenly, dying of congestive heart failure. Sometimes Poe feels guilty taking part in happy moments since her husband’s death, but she knows she needs to find happiness.
Poe wrote on her Facebook page:
Widows inherit the role of being the beacon who attests to their deceased spouse’s happiness. That’s why I sometimes find myself idealizing my marriage to him, describing our relationship as perfect, when in reality it was just as healthily flawed as any other marriage.
Kelsey Poe also stated a heartbreaking message that was:
On our wedding day, we vowed to love, cherish, and honor each other until ‘death do us part.’ But even after death, I still love, cherish, and honor him.
Tulsa World published a nice obituary about Sanderson, writing:
