Sorority grants World War II vet’s final wish to dance with a beautiful woman
A 92-year-old World War II veteran had one last wish he wanted to fulfill – to dance with a beautiful woman.
According to Fox News, Navy vet Paul Sonnier was the guest of the Phi Mu Sorority at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg at a party in his honor Monday.
“He’d always ask me if I wanted to go to Ropers, the local bar,” the sorority’s Jessica Moreau said. “He says ‘I’ll teach you how to jitterbug and the waltz.'”
Moreau met Sonnier through SouthernCare Hospice Services, where she interns, according to Fox News.
During visits, Sonnier told her his final wish was to dance with a beautiful woman. Sonnier got his wish granted where he ended up dancing to music with his hosts from his bed.
“It feels good to be with all these beautiful women,” said Sonnier.
“What we appreciate the most is that our greatest generation member, my father, is happy that this younger generation appreciates everything that he did and sacrificed so they can sit here and have fun and have the freedoms that they have,” his daughter Ida Sonnier said.
