Now instead of planning her wedding, she will have to prepare for Custer”s funeral.

According to reports, the two were on a bike ride less than one mile from their home. That’s when Custer heard what Thompson didn’t – a car coming up from behind.

Today his entire family weeps as they struggle to accept what has happened. But they find their piece of closure as they’re reminded of his devotion to those he loved.

Deputies say the driver showed no signs of impairment, but a full investigation is underway.
