Groom engages in an emotional dance with mother suffering from ALS
After eight years together, Kristeen and Luke Rheault have finally come to the most beautiful day of their life. Normally at the reception there is a traditional mother-son dance. But, this defies all tradition. The groom’s mother suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Her atrophied muscles have chained her to a wheelchair. So Luke kneels down next to her abruptly. At eye level with his mother he swings her carefully through the ballroom and tenderly dries her tears. In this moment, the bride falls in love with him all over again: “That was probably the most touching moment I have ever experienced,” tells Kristeen. “There wasn’t a dry eye in the room.” These four minutes really go straight to the heart:
Shortly after the recording, Luke’s mother died. But the groom is overjoyed that he was able to share this moment with his mother before she passed away. The memory of her happy face will be stored forever in his heart. If this last dance for a mother and son has touched you deeply inside, then share this emotional video.
