A young man who was getting ready to marry the loves of his life has been laid to rest on the day they were set to be married.
After an eight-month battle with cancer, 26-year-old Solomon Chau of Toronto passed away Aug. 17, and his funeral was on Aug. 22, which was his originally marriage date to Jenn Carter, according to a Today report.
The couple had decided to have a last-minute wedding in April after learning Chau had liver cancer that had spread, and that he probably wouldn’t make it to his wedding day.
Jenn announced the news of her husband’s death on Facebook, saying that she taught her to “never let a day go to waste.”
“I’m forever in your debt for showing me what love really is all about, and we learned more about it at 26 than some will learn in a lifetime,” she said. “You and I should have been able to live the next 60 years of our lives together, but I’m still forever thankful that God gave us 8 incredible years. You’re everything I could have asked for in a husband and more, and you’ll always have my heart.”
