Patty Davisson, 54, died just 18 days after she saw her daughter, Ashley, 26, walking down the aisle and says, “I do” with her high school sweetheart, Beau Broering, thanks to a connection laptop and Skype.
“She had a laptop in her hospital room and she looked her best friend from high school,” said the new Mrs. Broering The Post.
“It was really wonderful. I was worried that she would not be there or see it. She had become so ill just days before the wedding.
“It was an emotional day. I was walking down the hallway and I had a bit of a breakdown because I was not there. Then I saw the computer screen. We waved to each other and then everything was fine.
“She was so happy. She could not stop smiling that night,” said the new bride.
Shortly after witnessing the wedding May 06, Davisson died of cancer at Hospice Center in Cincinnati Drake.
