Nothing was going to stop David from attending this special day

Not even a life-limiting illness was going to get in David's way of being there for his daughter on her big day. Read David's thoughts and favourite memories during his time at the Hospice.

David, a beloved husband, dad and grandad was admitted to Cransley Hospice in December 2004. What is special about this story, is that David kept journal entries during his time in the hospice to note down his thoughts and feelings, and key events and memories throughout his life.

His daughter Yvette put all of his notes together and told us about a very special Wedding rehearsal that took place in the Hospice.

David’s Story

“Family and friends pulled together and in less than 48 hours we had flowers, cake, balloons, pianists, soloists, our Bridesmaid Kimberley and not forgetting Wayne taken into the laundry room at the Hospice to get a blanket to match the colour scheme.”

“Dad was very proud to be wearing his attire, not forgetting his Father of the Bride socks. He even had his hair cut by the nurses.”
