Thanksgiving Grandma

Back in 2016, a grandma accidentally texted the wrong number, inviting a man she didn’t know, Jamal Hinton, to Thanksgiving dinner. When they realized she had the wrong number, he asked if he could still attend to which she replied, “Of course you can. That’s what grandmas do…feed everyone.” The two still spend Thanksgiving together four years later.
