Bride given away by man with dad’s heart

SWISSVALE, Pa.—A Pennsylvania woman who was married this weekend had her late father’s spirit with her—and his heart.

Jeni Stepien was escorted down the aisle Saturday by the man who received her father’s heart 10 years ago when her father was killed by a mugger. His organs were donated after his death, and the recipient was Arthur Thomas, of New Jersey, KDKA-TV reported.
