Sweet Girl Takes Her 80-Year-Old Grandfather to His First Prom
Joy Webb is a typical teenager from Albertville, Ala. with anything but a typical prom date.
Joy decided to take her 80-year-old grandfather, James Drain — aka “Poppa” — to her prom. It’s the first time either of them have ever attended a prom.
So, what made Webb decide to go with Poppa:
My family is everything to me, and I love him so much, and it’s just like really special to me because I know not many people get to do that. And I know he loves me and I love him, and it’s just really neat and special.”
Poppa also got all cleaned up to don a tuxedo for the first time in his life. The night has another first, as well. The dashing duo took a horse-drawn carriage, the first time he’s ever done that.
Spending a magical evening with her grandfather was an experience Joy cherished, saying, “This is my prince for the night!”
