I am very sorry that you are going through this. But I can totally relate. My fiances mother passed away exactly a year ago tomorrow. We tried to get married as soon as we found out that she had stage 4 GI cancer. But we didnt know how little time we had.

She will not be there when we finally take the leap. And so my suggestion to you is to hire a justice of the peace and get married NOW. I dont know if you are having a big church wedding or anything. But again, based on my experience, having the person you love with you is more important.

If I could do it all over again, we would have gotten married in the hospital with her. Big church wedding could come later. But at least we knew she was there and gave us our blessing.

Whatever you decide, do it strongly.

I am so sorry to hear this. I lost my grandfather to Cancer last June and it was very hard, but with the love and support of family and friends it was easier. Don’t be afraid to lean on them for support. Remember to cherish each and every day with him and tell him you love him.

I am so sorry to hear this 🙁 It really is the worst feeling in the world. And such bad timing.

My grandpa has cancer too. Hes been strong and fighting for years but were at the end of the tunnel. His chemo has made him weak and now theres an infection in his blood which he has no immune system to fight. And he is so ready to go.

He was going to walk me down the aisle for my wedding in August as well.

Sending you so much love darling.
