Woman Dies Before Husband Sees Her in a Wedding Dress, then Days Later the Unthinkable Happened

John Polo is the author of the blog, Better Not Bitter Widower. His blog began as a way to share his thoughts and struggles after his wife passed away.

John’s wife, Michelle, was the love of his life. The pair were in the middle of planning their dream wedding when they learned Michelle would need cancer surgery.

The couple, who rushed to get married in a courthouse when she faced her first cancer surgery in 2013, had planned to do a more traditional ceremony for friends and family. Michelle, just 30 years old, died two weeks before the scheduled celebration, according to the story on Today.

John was heartbroken after losing the love of his life. He even opened up and said one of the things he missed the most was not being able to see her walk down the aisle in her beautiful wedding gown.


While John was left devastated after Michelle’s death, God had a way of giving John a special gift. John found a photo of Michelle trying on her gown and looking like a radiant bride!

"About a week after she died, I was laying in our bed looking at her phone for the first time," Polo, 33, told TODAY of coming across the image of his wife in the dress she never got to put on for him. "When I saw the picture, I felt happy and devastated at the same time, but mostly I felt proud she was my wife. I was crying and laughing at the same time."
