Texas Lawyer Accepts Billboard Marriage Proposal

A Texas lawyer who advertises on billboards received an important question Saturday on the same medium.

The question posed to lawyer Mimi Coffey, displayed on a digital billboard: “I love you Mimi. Will you marry me?”

Coffey said yes, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. She had been dating Tony Mancil for a year when he placed the message on a digital billboard. Mancil asked Coffey to wear a blindfold until they reached a parking lot nearby. After she saw the billboard he got down on one knee and proposed.

A new message now flashes on the billboard after the proposal, the story says. It reads: “She said yes! Mimi you have made me the luckiest man ever!”
