Therefore she asked her sister to leave the wedding. The woman posted her story online on Reddit using an anonymous account, and claimed the "entire speech" made by her sister "was about her" and her battle with depression, through which the groom helped her. Bride Dances With Her Dying Father on Her Wedding Day, The Viral Video Will Make You Cry.
