In the Unites States of America, a young lady whose father died years ago was walked down the aisle by the man who received her father’s heart.
The most important role a father has to play on his daughter’s wedding day is walking her down the aisle, but Michael Stepien didn’t live to see his daughter, Jeni get married as he was murdered 10-years ago and his heart was transported to Aurthur Thomas.
While Jeni was preparing for her wedding, her utmost wish was to walk down the aisle in arm with her father so she contacted Thomas who has her father’s heart to walk with her.
Jeni sent a letter to Thomas requesting him to be part of the wedding. In an interview, Arthur Thomas told CNN that it was a great honor for him to be the one walking the daughter of the man who’s given his heart to him and is the reason he is still alive.
On Jeni’s part, she said she felt close to her dad again while walking down the aisle. “Just hugging him made me feel like I was close to my dad again which on this day was perfect. It was what I needed,” said Michelle Stepien, sister of the bride. “The whole family is here now, it’s like everybody is here.” Jeni said.
In the most abstract way, Jeni finally got married and her wishes of being with her dad on her wedding day was accomplished, only with someone who had her father’s heart.
