Senior prom: one of the biggest nights in a teenager’s life. Felipe Leon had a date and a tux. Only one thing was missing: his grandpa.
The young man had a special bond with his grandpa. The man made it a point over the years to be at every one of his grandson’s recitals, sports games, school events, and everything in between. Sadly, Grandpa would miss out on a big one.
The man developed complications from diabetes. After the disease required the amputation of his toe, grandpa was left to recover from surgery in the hospital.
He was extremely disappointed telling his daughter, Nicole, he’ll be “happy to get pictures.”
Felipe couldn’t imagine the special night without the man that had always been there for him. That’s when the teen thought of the perfect compromise. They would bring the prom to Grandpa instead.
With his date on his arm, Felipe arrived at the Kindred Hospital Clear Lake in Webster, Texas. Wearing a full tuxedo and sparkling ball gown, the couple was dressed to the nines. Everyone burst into tears the moment Felipe walked into the hospital room.
Grandpa was touched his grandson had gone to such lengths to include him in the special night. The pair shared a much needed hug before the young man left for the big dance.
See the tear-filled moment the family locks eyes in the hospital in the clip below.
