In spite of not being able to attend his daughter’s marriage ceremony in Prince George, BC, Terry Bell was able to watch her walk down the aisle, at Bruyere’s Saint-Vincent Hospital in Ottawa in Canada, thanks to technology.
Terry Bell has been a patient there for the past twelve years and she had multiple sclerosis. On Sunday, sporting a tuxedo, Bell saw Shauna, his oldest daughter, “I do” via Skype video chat.
Terry’s brother Gerry Bell spoke on his behalf and he told that his brother if really delighted. Terry has tears of happiness and more importantly, his family is very precious to him. Patricia Bell, Terry’s niece, told that weddings are a huge deal for most families and especially girls always want their dads to be present there and this is just such a big scope for Shauna to have her dad present at the wedding ceremony.
When hospital staffs found out about the marriage, they wanted to all the things they could to be a part of this special occasion, stated communications manager Andrea MacLean. She added that it is always very important to enhance the lives of their patients so any scope they get to do something, be it large or small, they try to see what they could do.
There were beautiful decorations, photographs of the couple, champagne and snacks in the 6th floor boardroom for the event. After the marriage ceremony, Shauna and her husband Aaron delivered a really special message to her dad. Shauna told, “Hi dad, I love you so much, I’m so happy you could be a part of this.”
