A 9-Year-Old Bride: Dying Wish Comes True

A 9-year-old Jayla Cooper got married to 7-year-old Jose Griggs on Sunday, February 22, 2009 in Texas, United States.
Both Jayla Cooper and Jose Griggs are cancer or leaukemia patients. Jayla has battled this health problem for the past two years.
Jayla is expected to succumb to the disease in the next few weeks and it was her last wish to get married to her best friend.
Jose and Jayla met at Children's Medical Center two years back and quickly their friendship grew strong.
They both helped each other with their battle with illness.
"He knows what's going on," said Charla Griggs, Jose's mother.
The sad part is that Jose, the groom will be missing her soon.
At least he will have some good moments to recall and cherish.
A young Girl dying wish "Granted". Nothing wrong with that. Age is irrelevant for wishes and dreams.
This symbolic wedding was a celebration of life and friendship.
