Newlywed Charlotte said, “This was really an emotional moment. My father’s one wish was to see his daughter married and we made it come true for him. It made the day very bitter-sweet. It hurt me knowing that he would be leaving us but I was happy that he was there. I am happy he could see me get married.”

“That wedding was really for him because he wanted to walk with me to the altar and witness my wedding. We hired an ambulance and a private nurse. We thought he would be able to sit on a wheelchair, but he couldn’t take it and used the stretcher from the ambulance instead. But he really sacrificed because he felt pain in that moment. And we thank God for allowing that to happen.” Charlotte added.

Sadly, Mr Villarin sadly passed away 3 days after the wedding.
