This Groom’s Final Hours Were Filled With Unconditional Love


Sometimes, life’s saddest moments are the most beautiful.

In May, not long after proposing to his girlfriend, 29-year-old Rowden Go was diagnosed with stage IV liver cancer. His health quickly declined; his last wish was to marry his soulmate, Leizel May. So, with less than 12 hours of preparation, Go’s family put together a wedding ceremony in late June.

Below, in a video released by Go’s brother on YouTube, Go and May make their vows among friends, family and their 2-year-old daughter, Zakiah, at the hospital. Go passed away less than 10 hours after saying, “I do.”

This is what true love looks like.
