Lauren and Ben were visiting Lauren's grandmother, Nana, at the Johnson City Medical Center, where she had been battling pancreatic cancer for a while. By some happy miracle, Nana woke up to witness Ben proposing to Lauren. The joy and happiness can be seen all over Nana's face. Unfortunately, she passed away 15 days after the proposal. The video was recorded back in May, but Ben and Lauren wanted to wait to share the video until they had enough time to properly grieve.
