Ionia dad saves the day — and the dance

When Cody Ramey came home from work on a Saturday two weeks ago, his 7-year-old daughter Everly came down the stairs crying. They were set to go together to the Daddy Daughter Dance hosted by the Ionia Middle School that evening.

“She was bawling,” Ramey recalled. “She showed me her phone and said, ‘The dance is canceled.’ I said, ‘Well, we’ll figure something out.”
