A terminally ill father made his 11-year-old daughter’s birthday one to remember by walking her down the aisle in a surprise ‘wedding.’

jimmertzSadly, Jim Metz (62) was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and won’t be alive to make it to his daughter Josie’s actual wedding.

That is why his wife Grace hired Lindsey Villatoro, a photographer who offers photography sessions to clients with serious or terminal illnesses, to create a day that she could look back on.

It had originally been planned as a birthday surprise but Lindsey decided to go one step further and turn it into a wedding scenario so that Jim could walk Josie down the aisle.

She then turned the heartbreaking photographs into a video entitled ‘Walk me down the Aisle Daddy.’ Be warned, it’s a tearjerker!
