Dying 2-year-old is Pa. couple’s best man

JEANNETTE, Pa. (AP) — A 2-year-old boy with only weeks to live has served as the best man for his parents’ Pennsylvania wedding.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (http://bit.ly/W4JRFL ) reports that Christine Swidorsky carried two-year-old Logan Stevenson on her shoulder at the Saturday afternoon wedding in Jeannette, a suburb of Pittsburgh.

Looking dapper in a tiny tan pin-stripe suit and orange shirt, Logan stood with his grandmother, Debbie Stevenson, during a ceremony uniting Logan’s mother and his father, Sean Stevenson. The boy has leukemia and other complications.

The couple tied the knot in a hastily arranged backyard ceremony that celebrated Logan’s life. The couple abandoned an original wedding date of July 2014 after learning from doctors late last month that their son had two to three weeks to live.
