After the 11-Year-Old Girl’s Dad Died, Her Favorite NFL Star Took Her to the School’s Father-Daughter Dance

From a Washington Post story by Sydney Page headlined “Her dad died. So her favorite NFL star took her to the father-daughter dance”:

For Audrey Soape, the father-daughter dance is a big social event and always a highlight of her year. This year, though, as it was drawing near, the 11-year-old was filled with dread.

Audrey’s father died in March. Just five weeks later, she also lost her grandfather, who would have been her stand-in date to the dance.

“We had such a horrible year, and she had been through so much,” said Audrey’s mother, Holly Soape.
