And Ashley felt even more compelled to take care of her and be that protective older sister. When Ashley began seeing Will, she made sure Hannah was a big part of their relationship, and Will soon accepted Hannah like a sister of his own. A few years later, Will got on one knee and proposed to Ashley, and she said “Yes.” Then, Will turned to Hannah and asked if she would be his best friend forever.

Everyone attending the wedding was touched by such a moment. And it was beyond special for Hannah to be included in such a big event. Both Ashley and Will consider Hannah an enormous blessing in their lives.
