3 Sisters wed in last-minute ceremony so dying mom can be there

The mother of three sisters died on Monday, just one day after her daughters each got married in a last-minute triple ceremony. In this heartwarming albeit sad story, the three women had already agreed to sacrifice their individual wedding plans so that their mother who had been battling cancer for four years could see them be married, and had set the date for October 26. However, at the very last moment, they had to move the date up, as their mom's condition had worsened. With the help of their Snelville, Georgia, community, Becky Swales was able to see her girls walk down the aisle with their father.

Jodie, Sarah and Kaylie married in what was sure to have been an emotional ceremony this past Sunday, in part thanks to donations they received from neighbors and friends. Even a venue to host a reception later this month has been gifted.

 "It's kind of bittersweet," Jodie Swales told FOX 5'. "We are happy that she's here, but this will probably be the last big thing that we do with her," she said.

Despite having had time to process that their mother was going to pass away and being given the means to plan a rush ceremony that allowed them to grant their mother's dying wish, this week must be an exceedingly difficult one for the Swales family, and I hope and pray that they are able to rejoice in their new unions despite having to handle the details of their mother's death.

"It's hard, but I'm proud of my daughters," said their father, Otis Swales.  "I just pray God gives me strength to get through every day."
