Not every bride is so blessed
Here is a photo of DD with her four grandparents. Notice that the tie on the tallest man is the same as the ribbon on DD's bouquet - I wonder why that could be? Same surname perhaps?
My dad is the man closest to you - he was incredibly ill and was just determined to be at the wedding. After travelling for twelve hours by bus, train and car from his place to the motel the day before the wedding and repeating the experience the day after, he was rushed to hospital [150km/95 miles away] the following week and underwent surgery to have a kidney stent replaced on his left side and another inserted on his right*. The right ureter [tube between the bladder and kidney] was completely blocked. No wonder he was in a lot of pain. He could have died but praise the Lord for His intervention [answer to prayer] and dad's stubborn determination!

Thanks LW and JF-B for the photo.
