‘Wish You Were Here, Dad’ Orphaned Bride Cries, Awestruck as Crowd of Cops Arrives at Wedding

Charlotte’S father breathed his last without getting to see his daughter as abroad. When she broke down over the father-daughter dance, she would never have. She was distracted by a group of strangers, Gabe crashing her wedding. The moment Arthur first laid eyes on his beautiful baby girl. She became his world.

I win. He whispered playfully to his wife Brianna, as they shared a moment of pure Bliss, with their newborn Arthur, had always wanted a girl and he had thought of a name years before Brianna was even pregnant Charlotte. He called out to her and watched her eyes follow his voice, Arthur and Brianna found themselves relishing the simple Divine pleasures of early Parenthood. Of course there were challenges too. Some nights Brianna was too exhausted to put Charlotte to sleep.

Some other nights Arthur had to work overtime as Sheriff at the local Precinct. The couple powered through the difficult days, never failing to have each other’s backs. Three joyful years went by three birthdays: three vacations and three Christmases in their new world. That was all the time. Brianna got to be around for her daughter shortly after Charlotte’s third birthday Brianna had a cardiac arrest and bred their last without waking, her husband or child to say goodbye.

Arthur’S world had collapsed around him and in the middle of all, this Rubble stood his little motherless Angel Charlotte. She was too young to feel the pinch of not having a mother, but Arthur was intent on preparing her to live with a void left in her life. That she would soon become aware of, and he knew that coddling her wasn’t going to help. He had to harden her, make her strong to face the curveballs that life would throw her away. Charlotte, remember: you’re strong, smart, you’re, Fierce that was the slogan Arthur imprinted in his daughter’s mind.

Every single morning, rain or shine Arthur taught his daughter to be Untamed by the world and still be disciplined about the smallest things in life like making a bed and Shining her shoes. He taught her to try to fix her own problems. Remember strong kind and fierce Kin, I’m not always going to be around to fix things for you just because I’m the sheriff you listen to the voice that mama left in your heart and follow it for many years. Charlotte knew Arthur as a man who was stricter at home than he was at work as a sheriff, but she had seen the tenderness of his heart too. He was also there stroking her hair and singing to her through the nights when she was sick holding her when she cried missing her mother and eventually waiting up for her to see that she got home safe from a date or late shift at work.

Arthur’S little girl was not so little anymore and she was the most terrified of him. The day she brought home the man she wanted to marry dad made Akash she said and quickly excused herself to the bathroom. I hope dad likes him. I hope dad doesn’t hate me for suddenly growing up on him. I hope he isn’t too scared for me or sad that I might leave him soon or said that he might live a lonely life between these walls.

After I go away before Charlotte realized that she’d been in the bathroom for close to an hour, her father ultimately knocked on the door Charlotte, you can stop hiding now sweetie your boy and I are done talking Charlotte, opened the door with Trembling Hands, not knowing what To expect – and she found Akash down on one knee in the living room waiting to propose to her what about Dad Charlotte asked barely able to speak through the overwhelming emotions. He said yes, Akash grinned, making her chuckle the date was set and Arthur was too excited about his daughter’s big day to hide it. He had told every colleague at his workplace and he sometimes talked his way into telling distant friends and strangers on the street. My beautiful daughter’s getting married in his heart, he knew how excited Charlotte’s mom would have been. I’Ve done.

Everything I could to raise. You well Charlotte, Arthur said, holding his daughter’s hand at church a week before the wedding. I was far from perfect, but you had your mother’s honesty and her loving heart and she would have been proud of the woman. You’Ve become sorry if I was too strict with you. Sometimes you have nothing to apologize for you’re.

The man who raised me to be a woman in a man’s world Dad, I know you, put your Blood, Sweat and Tears into bringing me up, and I know you sacrificed a lot of big career moves to be with me. I love you for all of it. Dad and I’ll always be your little girl. They sat on the empty church bench talking their hearts out for hours. Thank goodness.

They did because, later that day, Arthur and his team were in the middle of a shootout in the sketchy outskirts of the town trying to NAB a wanted criminal, they got the guy, but not before Arthur, took a bullet to his chest and breathed. This last doing the job he loved Charlotte baby. Let’S postpone the wedding if you need time to grieve people who understand Akash tried to console his fiancee two days before they were set to marry. That’S not what Ted would want Charlotte realized and wiped her tears. He was so excited about this wedding.

Every time Charlotte wanted to break down and cry. She would remember her father’s slogan: you’re strong you’re, smart you’re, Fierce on her wedding day. She didn’t cry when she got ready and didn’t get to ask her father how she looked. She didn’t cry when she walked down the aisle holding a framed picture of her father, but when it was time for the father-daughter dance, she couldn’t hold back tears. This is so silly.

She chuckled through tears as she held the microphone with trembling hands. I promised him. I was gon na be strong today and now I’m crying like a child wish. You were here Dad – and I know you’re missing me terribly because you spent a whole month trying to pick the perfect song and moves for this very dance. It meant everything to you.

The beautiful bride broke down and every guest present shed tears too until they saw a crowd of unexpected men and women gate crashing the party it was a group of 12 cops in uniform, walking with serious faces straight to the bride. What’S happening, did somebody do something? Are we in trouble Charlotte frowned hi, Charlotte? Congratulations on your wedding day, sorry to barge in on this, but we have a request. The man who seemed to be in charge said looking at a confused Charlotte one by one.

The cops explain how they were former colleagues of Arthur and he had told him all about the wedding, especially about the father-daughter dance he wouldn’t shut up about it. Just like he wouldn’t shut up about you and how proud he was of you for all these years. An older calling, smiled you’ll always be your father’s daughter, even after his death, another elderly policeman said with tears in his eyes. It’S all right for you to cry child. Today of all days, you can be brave and vulnerable.

At the same time, the senior most men in the troop added gripping her hand and since our Arthur isn’t here to play that special song for you and dance. I thought we’d ask you on his behalf. May we have this dance with you, young lady. The chief has putting his hand forward Charlotte was in tears and it took a minute for her to be able to say yes as she danced with the men who knew her. Father is the best sheriff and Mentor.
