Jim explains: "My daughter has always found her own path. She played Flag football at 6. She hated wearing dresses. She wore a tuxedo to her first communion. She lettered in Soccer and Track. She then became an Engineer for the largest automaker in the world when she was 22. I could not imagine having a traditional/father daughter dance with her. That is not what we were or are...So I came up with this. She had no idea!"
