Tragic! Couple's Funeral Holds In The Same Church They Had Their Wedding Two Weeks Earlier
A newlywed couple who drowned on their honeymoon were remembered by family and friends yesterday at the same church where they married just two weeks ago.
John Rodgers, 28, and his wife Lynette, 26, drowned on October 23 after getting caught in a riptide at Plettenberg Bay, South Africa.
The couple had married at the First Presbyterian Church in Holywood, Co Down on October 17, but yesterday - just two weeks and two days later - their loved ones returned to the church to say their final goodbyes.
