SNELLVILLE, Ga. - Days after an emotional triple wedding, three sisters and their family said goodbye to a beloved Snellville woman.
Becky Swales passed away from breast cancer on Sunday just hours after her dream to see her daughters walk down the aisle came true.
Jodie, Sarah and Kaylie Swales planned their triple wedding after learning that their mother was only had a few months to live. They moved the wedding up three weeks after doctors told them that Becky Swales only had a short time left.
"It became necessary to move the timeline up for that ceremony to this past Sunday, where they were married. It was an unforgettable day," said Tim Gross, the pastor at Evangel Community Church.
Millions of people have been touched by the story. Thousands have extended their thoughts and prayers on the FOX 29 Facebook page and through donations to the family.
"It's been amazing, the outpouring of support -- just folks in the community that have never met this family, but so moved by their story," Gross said.
On Thursday, Otis Swales and his daughters buried Becky in a service at the small Snellville church.
"Becky has left her fingerprint on so many folks, certainly her family, but also her friends and the members here at Evangel. We will never forget her," Gross said.
The story will end with a reception that will include Becky's spirit next Saturday. The Swales sisters and their new husbands will have their wedding reception at Gallery Events on Oct. 26. The venue was donated.
"Heaven is described as a wedding reception, as a wedding feast. She has accepted her invitation to that wedding feast," Gross said.
The family said that their faith in God has gotten through the rough time.
