There weren’t any one-of-a-kind white dresses, sharp tuxedos, fancy decorations or hundreds of guests. There weren’t lovely gifts, a large band or numerous photos.
But for everyone there, it was one of the most beautiful weddings they had ever attended.
“There wasn’t a dry eye in the room,” said Penny Haas, Hospice R.N with Celtic Healthcare.
Haas and other Celtic healthcare team members helped Mark Adams and Amy Matthews* get married when Mark was in the final stage of his life. While he had recently transitioned into hospice with Celtic, it wasn’t an easy path for him or his beloved partner of 15 years, Amy.
According to Matthew Bupp, Hospice Chaplain, Mark was in his early 60s and suffering from a heart condition that would be fatal without a heart transplant.
