Austin Dennison, 19, a student at Ohio’s Parkway High School, a volunteer firefighter, Eagle Scout and aspiring doctor, needed a date for his prom. He asked his great grandmother Dolores. How could she resist that offer.

Dolores Dennison, 89, never went to her prom because she didn’t have enough money.

She asked him if he wouldn’t like to take a young lady but no, he preferred to take her.

He danced with her to the song, Dolores, which was a song her husband used to sing to her.

She said he was a perfect gentleman.

Austin told Fox News, “I respect my elders greatly. They have a great influence on my life. To be able to sit down and talk to them and learn from them and their experiences is a great thing.”
