DM- It had always been Mary Massey’s dream to marry her best friend Damien, her family said. So when doctors told them she did not have much longer to live, they granted her wish.
On Thursday evening, Mary was given her dream wedding as she married five-year-old Damien in a ceremony complete with Mickie and Minne Mouse rings and sealed with a hug.
Mary was dressed in a grey princess dress and wore a pink sparkly crown while Damien wore a suit.
The pair later enjoyed a cake covered in their favorite Disney characters, Mickie and Minnie Mouse.
A sweet snap capturing the special day showed the best friends all dressed up as they laid next to one another, holding hands, in Mary’s hospital bed.
Less than six hours after having her dream fulfilled, Mary died ‘in her mother’s arms, happy and without any pain’ early Friday, according to Damien’s mother and Mary’s godmother, Tonya Reyes-Dickerson.
