В декабре 2016 года Девид Мошер из Коннектикута, США собирался сделать предложение своей девушке 30-летней Хизер Линдсей, но у нее диагностировали рак молочной железы. Однако жених не отказался от своих намерений.
Heather's mother, Linda Lindsay, poured out light, love and support on Heather and all of us who were there with her. The amount of strength her mom showed could only be possible because of her unwavering faith in God, despite the certainty she would lose her only daughter on this earth. Her outpouring of selfless love reminded me of Heather's reaction to tragedy in other's lives. Heather has shown me this same care when I was in a very dark and hopeless place. She learned this language of love from her family and was able to comfort others in this same way. Like mother like daughter. Missing you this Christmas morning, Heather, but I know you are celebrating with the one who gives us the real joy and peace of the Christmas season. Sing and dance with the angels for me today. Merry Christmas my dear friend!
Хизер и Девид познакомились в мае 2015-го и уже через год были бесконечно влюблены друг в друга. Парень решил сделать предложение в декабре 2016-го, однако они узнали страшный диагноз: рак молочной железы.
Хизер почти год боролась с этим страшным заболеванием. Опухоль уже поразила лимфатические узлы девушки, и лечение ни к чему бы не привело. Оставалось смириться и ждать смерти
Свадьба была назначена на 30 декабря 2017 года в палате больницы Святого Франциска в Коннектикуте
Earned her wings! One of my dearest friends got married this past Friday, December 22nd, to the man of her dreams. She had been battling stage 4 cancer and it had spread all throughout her body, but she was determined to marry her soul mate. Less than 24 hours later her spirit flew from her body and ascended to be with God. I am in awe of the strength Dave's love inspired in Heather even in her last hours. She was his great love and he was hers. Heather, I miss and love you more than I can say. Thank you for sharing this life's journey with me. ❤️
На тот момент рак уже поразил мозг и легкие Хизер, и она была вынуждена пользоваться аппаратом искусственного дыхания. Поэтому торжество перенесли на 22 декабря
Standing in front of everyone in the chapel, I was hesitant to pull out my camera. As someone who wanted nothing more than to see my friend truly happy, I felt I had to capture these images, which by this point I knew were her final moments with us. What you clearly see here is two people who were destined to be joined as one. A love like no other captured for all to see. My gift to her.
«Смерть, я не боюсь тебя! Мое сердце наполнено любовью! И я собираюсь доказать это прямо сейчас!», — Хизер Линдсей.
I am in awe of the strength Dave's love inspired in Heather even in her last hours. She was his great love and he was hers. I pray these moments give Dave the same strength now to carry on the legacy of their love. Heather, you are greatly missed. The earth froze yesterday as the warmth of your light ascended to be with God for eternity. Until we meet again my dear friend. Watch over us. Original post from 12/24/17.
Через 18 часов после бракосочетания Хизер Линдсей умерла
Heather chose to spend her last hours celebrating surrounded by people she loved and who loved her. How do I know God is real? Because He was filling her with joy despite the fact that outwardly her body was failing. She chose to let God carry her, instead of wasting her last hours angry at him for allowing this illness. And carry her he did. He carried her home.
Подруга невесты рассказала, что девушка не боялась умереть только благодаря любви и решимости своего жениха
