William Jose, who has lymphatic cancer, will not be able to attend his granddaughter's wedding in Cyprus, on May 8, due to his illness.
However, the WGC man was able to stand with Natalie Jose - soon to be Edwards - after she made a special trip back from her new home in Pathos to have photos taken with him.

The opportunity was made possible after Jays Bridal Wedding Centre, in Moors Walk, WGC, lent 29-year-old Natalie, originally from Panshanger, a dress for free, just for the shoot.
Jill Whiting, who has owned the wedding shop for 20 years, said: "It wasn't a problem.
"I thought it was a really sad story and it [Natalie wearing the dress] wasn't going to do any harm.
"It was nice for him and for them to have something to remember him by.
