DALLAS -- Louise Troh was baptized at Wilshire Baptist Church, and she had hoped to marry her fiancé Thomas Eric Duncan here, but pastor George Mason broke the news to her this morning that Duncan had died.
“It was a painful and difficult time for her she reacted as almost anyone would, with great shock and disrepair,” Pastor George Mason said.
Pastor Mason and Judge Clay Jenkins met with Duncan's family at the safe house where they are quarantined.
“Their thoughts not only go to the shock and sadness of losing Mr. Duncan but also if this will be the course that their life will take next,” the pastor said.
“She is in the swirl of events that has been going on and is still very confused," said Mark Wingfield, Associate Pastor at Wilshire Church.
She released a statement after learning her fiancé had died of Ebola.
"His suffering is over. My family is in deep sadness and grief, but we leave him in the hands of God," said Troh.
“This is a lot to take in, in a short period of time and it would be for anyone," said Pastor Wingfield
Pastor Mason and judge Jenkins say none of the four family members have any symptoms of the deadly disease, but while they prayed for Eric Duncan, Pastor Mason offered up a prayer for those he left behind. t
