We're so sad this boy is losing his mother, but are happy that she got her dying wish when she watched her youngest son graduate high school with his entire class…from her hospital bed.
Blake Vilett and his entire graduating class at Parsons Christian Academy in Florida, put on their cap and gowns at the hospital so Mary Vilett, a mother losing her battle with lung cancer, could watch her son get his high school diploma.
The family and students gathered at her bedside for nearly two hours to not only celebrate her son's graduation, but her dying wish.
"She deserved it more than me because she's the one that made it happen," her graduating son said.
The dying mother fortunately witnessed another adolescent milestone for her son when she saw him wear his first tux before heading off to his senior prom.
We wish the Vilett family the best as they deal with Mary's tragic circumstance, but are so glad they were still able to find joy despite the sadness of losing a loved one.
