Kenneth Edward Souza came close to leaving his bride at the altar, disappearing on his wedding day, April 3. This week, he re-appeared, standing at the door of the home he shared with his fiance. Souza was wearing the clothes he left in — although he was thinner and more rumpled — after spending the month walking up and down the beach... thinking. His fiance said she still hopes they will marry.
