My cancer victim son's final wish
PROUD Lorraine Fleming had more reasons than most mums to shed a tear as she saw her son’s bride approaching in all her wedding finery.
For bridegroom Reece was just eight years old — and getting “hitched” to his sweetheart Elleanor Pursglove was his last dying wish.
Yesterday tearful Lorraine recalled how, as he clung to life for the romantic moment he had longed for, leukaemia victim Reece told her: “I’m not ready to go yet.”
Only after the pair had “wed” in an emotional mock ceremony in his front room did he finally succumb — and died the next day.
