Get the TISSUES!!!!
A photographer, taking the final family portraits of a terminally ill father with his wife and 11-year-old daughter, gifted them memories to last a lifetime.
In the final stages of pancreatic cancer, Dad knew he wouldn’t live long enough to walk his princess down the aisle at her wedding. So, on her birthday, little Josie came home to a BIG surprise.
Comprised entirely of DONATIONS from local businesses, Josie’s birthday party was actually her “wedding” complete with flowers, a wedding cake and decorated tables.
Waiting for her was a lacy white wedding gown, in her size, a hair stylist, make-up artist and a pink and white bouquet.
As friends and family lovingly watched, and soft music played, Josie clutched her daddy’s arm and he walked her down the aisle.
They stood before the pastor and he said:
“Your dad may not get to see you get married, but he is here to walk you down the aisle today.”
As her father placed a promise ring on her index finger, the pastor pronounced them “Daddy and Daughter,” adding that the father/daughter relationship is one of the most special in life.
Josie and her parents are currently in Hawaii on what, may be, their last family trip.
