While officiating the wedding ceremony for her two friends in 2010, Rebecca Wingo shed tears of happiness.

She had played a role in the two meeting each other, having taken her pal Cody Shafer out on the town the night he would meet his partner, Marq. So when the two men planned their nuptials, they knew Wingo had to be a part of it.

"That I'll have forever," he said. "Her laughter and then breaking down in the middle of our ceremony and crying."

Shafer and Wingo met in 2009 in an accounting class at a community college. Both single, recently out of the Air Force and new to town, they became fast friends.

"I don't think Rebecca ever met a stranger," Shafer said. "Her smile would just light up a room."

Wingo had started a job several months ago as a customer relations representative at a mobile medical imaging company.

Shafer said the 32-year-old was a hard-working single mother, balancing the raising of her two daughters with school and work.

"If she put her mind to something she was going to get it done," he said. "What an example she set for her little girls."

Wingo was killed Friday, July 20, 2012 in the shootings at an Aurora, Colo. movie theater.
