    The girl in the picture is Katie Kirkpatrick, she is 21 . Next to her, her fiancé, Nick, 23.
    The picture was taken shortly before their wedding ceremony, held on January 11, 2005 in the US .
    Katie has terminal cancer and spend hours a day receiving medication.
    In the picture, Nick is waiting for her on one of the many sessions of quimo to end.

    In spite of all the pain, organ failures, and morphine shots, Katie is going along with her wedding and took care of every detail. The dress had to be adjusted a few times due to her constant weight loss.

    An unusual accessory at the partywas the oxygen tube that ketie used throughout the ceremony and reception as well.
    The other couple in the picture are Nick's parents. Excited to see her son marrying his high school sweetheart.

    Katie died five days after her wedding day. Watching a women so ill and weak getting married and with a smile on her face makes us think..... Happiness is reachable, no matter how long it last. We should stop making our lives complicated.



    Life is short
    Break the rules
    forgive quickly
    love truly
    laugh constantly
    And never stop smiling
    no matter how strange life is
    Life is not always the party we expected to be
    but as long as we are here, we should smile and be grateful.
