- A woman pleasantly surprised her granny
- The gran wasn't able to attend her wedding so she went to visit her gran in her wedding dress
- Photos from the beautiful moment have gone viral on social media
A woman has paid her granny a very special surprise. After the old woman in hospice care couldn't attend her granddaughter's wedding, the granddaughter brought her wedding to her.
Tara Foley’s grandma, Stasia, was put in hospice care in Florida a year ago and all the 102-year-old woman wished for was to attend Tara's wedding in Texas. Unfortunately, due to her old age and ongoing heart problems, she was not fit to travel.
Foley was determined to give her the next-best thing: The bride-to-be grabbed her wedding gown and flew from her home to her grandmother in Florida. She enlisted the services of a local photographer to take pictures as she surprised her.
She had her bridal make-up done before she got to Stasia, and got her aunt and uncle to help her keep the surprise under wraps.
When Stasia eventually saw the beautiful bride, she couldn't help but smile.
“She was just so surprised. She stretched out her arms and reached for a hug the moment she saw me and told me I was beautiful.”
Tara shared pictures of the beautiful occasion on Facebook and the post had over 1.5 million likes. To add to how special the moment was, it was to be the last time the pair saw each other. Stasia passed away 27 days later.
Social media users were touched by the sweet story. Facebook user Linda Schimon said:
"How precious to have these moments with your grandma."
While Chris Horton said:
"What a beautiful moment for you."
Jane Knappett said:
"Truly Beautiful x Welling up!"
