Dad Takes Son's Girlfriend To Prom After The Teen Dies In A Car Crash

May 23, 2018

The senior prom at James Buchanan High School in Mercersburg, PA, was just one month after Carter Brown died in a car accident.

So, Carter's father, Robert Brown, escorted his late son's girlfriend, Kaylee, to the big dance.

"My son was a sweet, caring kid, and Kaylee is very sweet too, and she is a part of our family," Robert told the Centre Daily Times. "When the passing topic of prom came up, I kept thinking my son would want her to go. That prompted me to get the ball rolling."

Though a devastated Suders initially did not want to attend the prom, she agreed to attend with her boyfriend's dad.

"I know it would have made Carter happy that I still went, and I know he's smiling ear to ear at the fact I went with his dad," she added.

The photos were shared on Facebook by Carter's mother, Kelly Brown.

"Add this to the list of reasons why I love my husband... Since Carter couldn't escort Kaylee to her prom, Robert stepped in. Kaylee, I know Rob wasn't your first choice for a date, but he will forever be mine," she said.
