Dying dad gives daughter wedding gift
INDEPENDENCE, MO – A Missouri father battling a deadly disease gives his 10-year-old daughter an advance wedding gift she’ll never forget.
It began with a ring and dad’s dying wish. It will be sometime before 10 year old Nakeol gets married, but when she does, her dad will be there. Nakeol’s dad Johnny has been fighting from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD for the last 5 years. On Sunday, he was her dad on her very special day, and more than a video, he gave her something else to remember him by.
“He gave me a ring, it’s a diamond ring with two hearts.” said Nakeol Wells.
A ring she’s suppose to wear until her wedding day. But, more than just a smile from dad and a keepsake memory that will last forever, the family got feedback from folks all over wanting to do the same thing.
