The wedding is not until the end of September, but on Thursday, she and I are flying up to her Grandparents' and taking the gown with us.
Mum and Dad both have cancer, and while Mum is doing ok on chemo tablets at the moment, Dad does not have very long to live. We expect it will be quite soon, so we are going up with the gown, for her to try it on and show him his only Grandaughter in her wedding dress.
He has always been very proud of his Grandchildren, and always said he would make a speech at her wedding. I expect this to be a very tearful occasion, but it is something she wants to do, and so do I.
We only pray that we will get there in time for him to wake long enough to see her.
Please remember us in your prayers.
