Sydney Lawrence, 17, from Crosby, Texas, didn’t want to be embarrassed by not having a partner for her school’s father and daughter dance.
So because her dad isn’t in her life, Lawrence’s aunt was happy to do the honors.

“The mustache was originally a joke, but I insisted I wanted her to wear one. I thought it would be really hilarious,” she added.
Kristen Roulet, 34, a police officer, told BuzzFeed News she didn’t hesitate to tell her niece she would be there for her.
Roulet said: “I am a police officer and was working [the night of the practice] but they videoed it for me, so we went over it the day of the dance and crushed it.
“The mustache was just a little touch to make it more fun and memorable.”
Lawrence said people loved what her aunt did for her.
“I never really knew my father, he never had a part in my life, and my mother is like my best friend. [She] and my aunt solely raised me,” Lawrence said. “And I think having two women who love you insanely is better than having a father.”
