Teen Takes Great-Grandmother to Prom
Here’s something you don’t hear everyday. An Ohio teen took his great grandmother to the prom. Austin Dennison invited Delores, who just had a heart attack and stroke to his prom, an experience she didn’t get to have herself. He even serenaded her before they left and gave her a pearl necklace.
Delores Dennison tells the Times Bulletin: ‘We went to Bob Evans in Celina and then we went to the prom. ‘
Austin says he was happy to have his great grandmother as his date and give her something she missed out on in high school.
She was hitting the balloons with her cane. When the music started to play, we danced. They played the Frank Sinatra song, ‘I love the kisses of Delores.’ Her husband (Edward) used to sing that song to her. There was a standing ovation when we came out. I know this helped her out. When you help others, in some way you help yourself. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.
Austin even posted great photos of the two on Instagram.
What a great kid. His parents should be so proud!
