Detra and Darrell Thompson worried they might never make it to the altar.
Every time Detra Thompson thought about marrying the love of her life, she was overcome with the same crippling fear.
“Before I would even walk down the aisle, I would lose my best friend,” she said.
Detra met Darrell 22 years ago while working together at the Winn Dixie in Arlington.
“There was just something special about him,” Thompson said.
