Early this year, Rowden and Leizl decided to get married on July 8, 2014, Rowden’s 30th birthday. Together with their adorable 2-year-old daughter, they already had a perfect family.
Then a twist of fate, Rowden got diagnosed with stage IV liver cancer in late May. His last request was to marry his one true love. After 12hours of preparations, his dream was fulfilled. Unable to take him outside the hospital, the family brought the church to him. This is absolutely a heartbreaking fairytale.
At first the video appears like any other wedding film, with scenes of the bride getting ready, while classical music plays in the background.
It then shows Rowden, in a white shirt with rose bud button hole, being gently guided through a hospital corridor on a stretcher by friends dressed in suits.
A video that captured the beautiful and heartbreaking ceremony earlier this month has quickly gone viral, with more than 8 million views since it was uploaded on June 18.
Rowden Go, at the age of 29-years-old, passed away on June 11, 2014. Less than 10hours after he said his vows.
He is survived by his wife Leizel May, daughter Zakiah Rowzel, mother Lorelei, and brothers Hasset & Hisham.
This is a “bittersweet” story of life. I am so glad that Rowden’s last wish was granted — and so painfully sad for the new bride who has to endure the loss of such a good man. With all the issues that’s happening on the internet, I’m glad inspirational story like this gets attention too. My heart goes out to the family and friends.
