Patty Parrotte wasn't going to be able to make her daughter's graduation as she was suffering from breast cancer and an autoimmune disease.
Patty knew she didn't have long left here on earth. Bound to the hospital, Patty was heartbroken that she would miss such an important moment in her daughter's life. But school officials arranged for daughter Samantha to visit the hospital and receive her diploma 2 weeks early, right there in front of her mother.
Sadly, Patty passed away shortly after this moment but I'm so glad she was able to share this special memory with her daughter. What a beautiful moment that so many worked so hard to make happen.
