Get ready for your mid-Friday cry. A teenaged girl from Tennessee was too distraught to go prom dress shopping this year after her mom recently passed away. So she decided to wear the same dress her mom wore to prom nearly two decades ago.
17-year-old Taylor Branum lost her mom in a tragic car accident back in March that also injured her 10-year-old brother, InsideEdition.com reports. So prom dress shopping, which she had planned to do with her mom, was the last thing on her mind.
Then she realized the long, black gown her mom wore to prom with her dad in 1998 was still sitting in her mom's closet. "I pulled it out and I tried it on," she told InsideEdition. "I cried a bit. I know it sounds crazy, but I could feel her with me."
