Seven years later, even though they now went to different schools Ben asked her to prom with a balloon message.
When the big day came wearing matching lavender, Ben and Mary, went to prom together and even their fourth grade teacher came to see them off and told PennLive about their friendship, saying, “He watched over her constantly. If he was not looking like he was having fun, he always watched out for her.”
Ben's mom, Lisa, explained the moment that her son told her he wanted to take her to prom.
“Ben had gone to his cousin's prom and on the way home he said, 'Do kids like Mary go to prom?' And I said, 'Sure, honey, if someone askes them. Why do you ask?' ‘Well, you know I’m going to take Mary to prom,’ and it was at that time we all had the conversation,” she said.
The two posed for pictures and it's so heartwarming to see ben fulfill his fourth grade promise to Mary, we're sure that will be a night she'll never forget!
