A young girl got her wish of “marrying” her boyfriend just hours before she died.
5-year-old Marry Massey of Texas, wanted to marry her best friend Damien.
Her family said that the two had been talking about getting married since they were 2 years old.
Massey, who suffered from cystic fibrosis, was hospitalized with chronic pneumonia. When doctors informed the family that Massey was very ill and she does not have much time to live, they decided to give her the wedding she wanted.
The couple held the “wedding” at the Cook Children’s Hospital. Massey was dressed in a gray gown, veil and crown, while her best friend was dressed in a matching gray suit.
The two lied in the hospital bed together and they were holding hands as they wore matching Mickey and Minnie Mouse “wedding” rings.
The “newly married couple” expressed their love with a hug before enjoying a cake that was decorated in their favorite Disney characters, Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
Less than six hours after the girl had the wedding of her dream, she died in her mother’s arms.
She is survived by her parents, her 9-year-old sister, 14-year-old brother and her 5-year-old husband.
