BITTERSWEET: Grieving dad takes his late son’s girlfriend to the prom (Photos)

High school senior Mackenzie Stewart and her boyfriend of several years, Marshall Curtis, had plans of sharing a life together, with their biggest upcoming plan to go to the prom. But tragically, Marshall died in a car accident just a month before the dance, and Mackenzie was not about to go without him.

That’s when Marshall’s father, Carson Curtis, decided to step in and accompany Mackenzie to the prom. Now the heartwarming photos from the evening have been making the rounds on social media, showing Carson overwhelmed with emotion as he escorts Mackenzie and receives support from their entire Canadian community in Miramichi, New Brunswick.

“We were heartbroken for her that Marshall couldn’t take her,” Marshall’s mom and Carson’s wife Elizabeth tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “She insisted she didn’t want to go without him. We were also wondering who could fill his shoes. That’s when Carson decided to ask her if he could take her.”

Mackenzie jumped at the idea. “She thought it was great. We didn’t want her to miss out on her prom,” says Elizabeth.
