This woman was left “in bits” once she discovered a touching last message from her late mother which was inscribed on the bottom of her wedding shoes.
In 2017, Emma Lett’s mum sadly passed away after being diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. She was unable to attend her daughter’s wedding as a result.
When she collected a pair of bridal shoes at the weekend she was left shocked once she discovered that her mother had secretly paid for and had a personal message inscribed on them.
It read: “Wanted you to have a gift from me on your wedding day. Your wedding shoes are my gift to you.”
“Hope you have a magical day. Lots and lots of love and big hugs, MUM xxxx”
Emma, who is due to get married in August, explains: “It’s been so hard planning a wedding without having her with me, and I have had lots of tears.”
“I had absolutely no idea, my fiancé knew about it. It was just an absolute shock.
“I pulled out the one shoe and I saw part of the message and I couldn’t think who it would be.”
“I started to cry… I was just absolutely in bits. I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t talk.”
Emma explained how her mother had previously written letters to members of her family which were to be read after she passed away, however she never got the chance to write one to her.
Emma said: “I didn’t get a letter, she just ran out of time so this is special to me.”
Emma’s mother made contact with Amanda Weise who manages the online store Lace and Love and arranged to have the shoes made for her daughter.
She said: “It’s probably the most emotional pair of shoes I’m ever going to make.
“Hopefully it will give her a bit of comfort on the day. It will be like walking down the aisle with her mum.
“It was her mum who told me she had cancer and wouldn’t be there for Emma’s wedding day. She told me on the first message she sent me.”
“Her mum actually emailed me and said she wanted to pay for the shoes. I said, ‘well she’s already paid half’.
“She said, ‘can I pay for it all and then you refund her the money when she gets the shoes?’
“I was aware that she was terminally ill at the time. I think Emma was kind of hoping she would see the wedding.”
“From the message that she wrote, I think she did intend for it to be after she was gone.”
