Five-year-old Corey Edwards was only seven months old when he was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect and spent most of his life in Bristol Royal Hospital for Children. Facing an imminent death, this young sweet boy had an special final request: he wanted to see his parents get married.
His parents, Craig and Jemma Edwards have always been devoted to each other and their beautiful family, but had chosen not to get married for personal reasons. However, after their son’s request, they worked as quickly as possible to prepare for the wedding ceremony. Five days after they married at his bedside, Corey passed away.
Any parent could imagine that getting married in a hospital room with your dying child would be heart-wrenching experience. But Craig and Jemma wanted to give their little boy his final wish.
I’m so glad that they did this. I can’t imagine how hard it would have been.
