BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) — A Daphne bride’s terminally ill father in the viral father-daughter dance video has passed away.
According to a close family friend, Mary Bourne’s father Jim Roberts passed away Thursday around noon. Roberts was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a highly aggressive brain tumor, in May of 2017.
Each day after, the family wondered whether he would make it to his daughter’s wedding, and he did!
The family is hoping to raise awareness about Jim’s illness, and encourage people to donate to the American Brain Tumor Association.
