Dying Dad Attends Ten-Year-Old Daughter’s ‘Wedding’ From Hospital Bed [VIDEO]
10-year-old Nakeol Wells has and always did have a dream. That her father would walk her down the isle.
She won’t get that chance because her dad is sick, but a special ceremony helped make a memory she will never forget.It all began with a ring and her dad’s dying wish.”His baby is the reason he has stayed alive this long,” Nakeol’s mom, Glenda Wells, said.
It will be some time before Nakeol gets married. But when she does, her father will be there.During the bedside ceremony, the young Taney County, MO, girl made the promise to her father that she will search until she finds a ‘godly man to marry.’
Nakeol’s dad, Johnny Wells, has been fighting from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, for the last five years. On Sunday, he was her dad on her special day, but more than a video, he gave her something else to remember him by.
Nakeol said later in life when she gets married she is going to play the video before her wedding and her flower girl will wear the dress she wore before her dad – dreams of a little girl and the wish of her father.
