John met Michelle in high school, where they met for about a year. After eight years, the couple reunited and planned to spend the rest of their lives together.

John and Michelle got married in court to become husband and wife as soon as possible, and only after that they began planning a real wedding, not knowing whether the bride would live to see her. The holiday was not destined to take place - Michelle passed away two weeks before the planned event.
“I regret a lot. I did not see her walking down the aisle to the altar. But she had this dress - the dress of her dreams. She loved him very much. While at the hospice in her final days, she told people about her future wedding. Michelle died and I never saw her in her dream dress, ”writes John.

This picture will be remembered to John, as a photo from this holiday, where the living Michelle smiles at her fiance.
