Ailing father in viral wedding video passes away

 

Rated K featured a courageous display of a father’s love as Pedro “Papu” Villarin Jr. walked down his daughter Charlotte Villarin down the aisle on her wedding day in a stretcher, three days before he passed away. The video of the wedding went viral on social media a couple of weeks ago. 

Speaking with host Korina Sanchez, Charlotte told the touching and heart-wrenching story of her ailing father. 


“Before po kasi sya nawala, panay siya sabi sakin na anak, ang gusto ko lang maka-attend ng kasal mo, sabi ko, ‘a oo naka-attend ka naman a,’ at sinabi nya natupad ko na. Pero hindi ko inexpect na kinagabihan magpapaalam na talaga siya.”
