Fast-forward a decade and Derick meet someone who he fell head over heels for. Her name is Katy and the two decided to make the relationship permanent after dating for a few years. Despite the happy occasion, the wedding was also bittersweet for Derick. He wanted his brother to be his best man, but that opportunity was tragically unavailable. To help cheer up her man, Katy reached out to find a super special guest for the wedding.
After Jake's tragic accident, his organs were donated. His family wasn't ever told who received their beloved family member's organs. However, Derick's bride-to-be wasn't going to let that stop her from surprising her fiance with the most amazing wedding gift. She searched for over a year and finally tracked down the woman who had received Jake's heart when she was only 6-years-old.
Katy contacted the woman and asked her to attend the wedding to surprise her husband. She was just as excited as Katy about the opportunity to surprise Derick. Before the wedding, Katy broke with tradition by meeting with her groom before the ceremony. She told him which surprise guest would be in attendance. Derick was amazed at how much effort his future wife had gone through to find the woman who Jake was able to save a decade ago.
