Teary! Dying Mom Customized Loving Message On Daughter’s Wedding Shoes Because She Knew She Would Be Dead By Then
Bride-to-be Emma, 38, who is due to get married in August, last week received the shoes and said she was ‘in bits’ when she saw her mum’s message.
Her mother was diagnosed with cancer a month after Emma got engaged to fiance Richard and she had hoped she would make it to the wedding, but sadly died in 2017.
Emma told the BBC: ‘It’s been so hard planning a wedding without having her with me, and I have had lots of tears.’
She said the shoes came in the post and she was told her mum had already paid for them.
Written on the soles of the shoes was the message: ‘Wanted you to have a gift from me on your wedding day. Your wedding shoes are my gift to you.
‘Hope you have a magical day. Lots and lots of love and big hugs, MUM xxxx.’
Emma said: ‘I had absolutely no idea, my fiancé knew about it. It was just an absolute shock.
‘I pulled out the one shoe and I saw part of the message and I couldn’t think who it would be.’
She said that when she realised it was from her mum: ‘I started to cry… I was just absolutely in bits.
‘I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t talk.’
Emma shared her story and a picture of the shoes to Facebook, where she was inundated with support.
