When she saw Cassie’s dress, she was stunned. She soon recognized the dress and it brought her to tears.

The dress Cassie had on was Dottie’s prom dress 63 years ago and she had no idea that her granddaughter was able to preserve the dress.

She also had no clue Cassie was going to wear the dress for her grad night.


Cassie’s aunt, Angela Gillam, explained that Dottie gave Cassie the dress when she was little and had assumed that her granddaughter was going to use it to play dress up.

Cassie’s parents decided to keep the dress in her closet, and it certainly served its purpose again after many years.

Dottie’s reaction was captured on Gillam’s camera and it was priceless.

She had no idea that a gift she gave years ago was going to be valued by Cassie so much. Dottie surely felt special.
