Back in 2016 Grandson changed his phone number and Grandma didn't know.
She sent him a Thanksgiving invite via text and there was a new owner of the number..
He said he would like to come to dinner if it was possible.. and here they are going on year 6

He looks like such a nice boy.

Hinton shared the exchange on Twitter; it quickly went viral. And it's become an annual tradition that's beloved by the families and the internet.

Hinton recently shared on Twitter that he will be at Dench's house again this year to enjoy good food and great conversation.
"We are all set for year 6!" he tweeted. https://twitter.com/Jamalhinton12/status/1459982391108202498

Over the years, Hinton has documented their celebrations through photos on Twitter.

In April 2020, Dench and her husband, Lonnie, were in the hospital with COVID-19. He died from complications from the virus.

"I wasn't looking forward to [Thanksgiving dinner] at first because Lonnie wasn't going to be there," Wanda told CNN in 2020.
"The past seven months have been so difficult, but this was really important to me."
