This Is what true love looks like. 24 year old William Kent met his future wife, Emma while still in School.
After many years of dating, he proposed to her on Valentine’s Day in 2009 but they decided to postpone their wedding until 2014 for financial reasons.
Their life together and plans for the future were dealt a bitter blow in April when William began getting pains in his arm and coughing.
He was later diagnosed with lymphoma cancer and fought the disease for 6 months before it spread to his nervous system and brain, which resulted in the loss of his speech.
The couple had decided to get married in the hospital and arranged an impromptu ceremony for October 3 where they exchanged vows.
William, who by this time could no longer speak, said “I do” by squeezing Emma’s hand.
Sadly, William died 11 days after his wedding to the love of his life.
Life is unpredictable and fleeting, never take it or anybody in it for granted. In the end love will be our only living legacy.
