Daughter Dances With Her Dying Father at Her Staged Wedding Reception

I have talked about dancing with my dad many times. Captain Morgan is THE best dancer. At BOTH my wedding receptions, dancing with my dad was one of my most emotional moments of the entire night. He has danced with me since I was a very little girl. I don't like to think about the day that I won't be able to dance with him. But, as he get's older, the reality of our dances ending is very real.

A friend of my family sent me this video. This young woman staged a VERY emotional wedding reception, Father/Daughter dance with her dad who is battling cancer to insure that she would NOT miss that special moment with him. The moment was recorded so that when her special day REALLY arrives, her dad will be there, dancing with her. I can TOTALLY understand. Grab a tissue before you watch it.
