As parent’s we’d do anything for our kids. That includes being there, as best we can for them during the transitional moments in their lives. But we can’t always be there for everything. One dad, however wasn’t going to miss the opportunity to walk his daughter down the aisle. Despite being ill, bedridden and nearing the end of his life, he gathered all of his strength to make sure he was there to “walk” her down the aisle for her wedding.

The moment was beautifully captured by Law Tappala Photography in Manila. Mr. Pedro Villarin, the father, was wheeled down the aisle to give his beautiful daughter away. This family in the Philippines was able to celebrate the wonderful day together, before Mr. Villarin sadly passed away five days later. His love for his family helped give him the strength to be there for his little girl one last time and he reminds us that love for our kids can make us the strongest people in the world.
