Lisa knew she wanted to have her father present to not only give her away but share a special father and daughter dance, as she had always dreamed. The couple, had planned for the wedding to take place a week later and at a much different location. Due to the circumstances with David, the couple changed plans so the wedding could be held at the Irvine hospital where her father was at. Lisa had asked her terminally ill father to dance with her. He let her know that since he could not get up he would not be able to fulfill her request. Lisa told him that they could dance with their hands and that is just what the two did in a beautiful show of love and affection between a father and his daughter.
