Mary told Fox News that, “We had always planned to use the song – we weren’t sure how he was going to even feel that day – we just knew that we were going to do it somehow.”  After their special song — I Hope You Dance — came to a close, the father expressed gratitude towards his daughter and told her that he loved her and the dance itself meant so much.
