Remember The Grandma Who Accidentally Texted A Teen Inviting Him To Thanksgiving? They Reunite For The 5th Time, This Year Honoring Her Late Husband

Remember that guy who, back in  2016, received a random message from a random woman, claiming to be his grandma, inviting him for Thanksgiving dinner? Their story had some ups and, unfortunately, some downs too, but it’s still continuing.


Recently, the grandma and the “complete stranger” reunited for the fifth time and celebrated the upcoming Thanksgiving. Sadly, it was their first celebration without the mother’s husband around—if you recall, seven months ago, he passed away from COVID-19.

This story started back in 2016, when Wanda accidentally invited Jamal to her Thanksgiving dinner via text. After the woman figured out that this kid she was texting wasn’t her grandson, she still didn’t shy away from inviting him to join the celebration.

And that’s how Jamal became a regular guest at Wanda’s family’s Thanksgiving dinner. Every year, they would reunite and share some of the happy moments on their social media accounts.

This year’s Thanksgiving celebration is the first one without Wanda’s husband around. Recently, Jamal and Wanda reunited for the fifth time, and they even placed a picture of Lonnie on the dinner table.
