Mom Lives to See Daughters Marry
Updated: Wednesday, October 16 2013, 03:46 PM EDT
(ABC) - A Georgia woman died just one day after seeing her three daughters get married.
Becky Swales had been battling breast cancer, according to ABC News affiliate KGO-TV in San Francisco.
Swales’ daughters Jodie, Sarah and Kaylie Swales, of Georgia, had raised money from the local community in Snellville so that they could have all three of their weddings on the same day with their mother in attendance.
Each of the sisters walked down the aisle with their father on Sunday. Their mother was in the front row. During the event all three went up to her at the same time in their wedding dresses.
“It’s kind of bittersweet because we’re happy she’s here, but we’re sad because it’s probably going to be the last big thing we do with her,” Jodie Swales said.
Swales passed away the day after the weddings, at age 43.
Jodie Swales took to her Facebook after her mother died and called her mother “the most beautiful person” and an “angel.”
“I know she’s watching me and my family and I’m gonna [sic] give her a life that she’d be proud to watch,” wrote Jodie Swales. “Thank you God for letting her be here for the wedding yesterday. I love you bigga [sic] bunches mommy. R.I.P.”
