This was a one time opportunity for Maeve and Bill to have the time of their lives.

The pair took classes, and after just taking six, they perfected the routine. Now everything was prepared for the young lady's big day.

Maeve was overcome with emotion by everything her granddad did for her. Everyone attending the presentation can feel the adoration and affection they have for one another.

"They're probably aren't too many tap-dancing grandfathers around," Bill said. He added that he was extremely pleased to do it and amazed at the reaction.

Thinking this was the most adorable video, her mom chose to spread it online so that other individuals can witness the importance of grandparents in the life of the kids.


Another adorable moment that won over the hearts of many people was when the 85-year-old grandmother joined her granddaughter's dance during the family's talent show.

In the viral YouTube clip below, grandmother Franklin can be seen dancing to the popular song “Cupid Shuffle” by Cupid with her granddaughter.

There are numerous reasons why grandparents are our most loved individuals. They are those that make our childhood memorable with all the delightful moments they share. They usually spoil us and say yes to all that we want.
