91-year-old woman attends her first prom
PITTSBURGH, Pa. (CNN) -- A 91-year-old Pennsylvania woman fulfilled a dream on Friday night, May 9th -- as she attended her very first prom!
Her date? Her 92-year-old husband of 67 years, Joe Lamping.
The two weren't high school sweethearts -- and Joe attended prom as a teenager, but Edna's family never allowed her to go.
But that didn't stop her from dancing.
"We used to dance Friday, Saturday and Sunday -- but not anymore because the legs don't carry ya!" Edna Lamping said.
Edna and Joe's granddaughter wanted to plan a prom-style party for the couple -- but her mom had a better idea.
Joe and Edna Lamping's daughter contacted her Alma Mater to see if the couple would be invited to Montour High School's prom.
Montour High School staff immediately got on board and made the Lampings their VIP guests.
Edna couldn't have been happier on Friday night -- and her date and husband said it best:
"Oh, I think I brought the best-looking girl here!" Joe Lamping said.
Sure -- times have changed and teenagers don't dance like they used to
"Yeah, now they just stand in one place and shake it!" Edna Lamping said.
But when a moment is 91 years in the making, you can dance however you want!
Edna and Joe Lamping will celebrate 68 years of marriage in June.
