Dying father walks daughter down the aisle in surprise 'wedding'

Posted: Updated:
An emotional ceremony in California after a terminally ill father watches his 11-year-old daughter walk down the aisle after finding out that he wouldn't be there for her wedding.

Dressed in white lace and looking like an angel, Josie Zetz walked down the aisle to stand hand-in-hand with her father, 62 year-old Jim Zetz, who has been diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer.

Family and friends gathered for the ceremony which took place in the back yard of their home on little Josie's 11th birthday.


The proud papa beamed as she walked down the aisle.

When pastor pronounced them "daddy and daughter," he slipped a sparkling ring on her finger.

The event was planned in just 72 hours with contributions from the community.
