Grandmother and teen have Thanksgiving for 3rd year after wrong text


MESA, Ariz. – An Arizona grandmother and teenager have continued a Thanksgiving tradition that started with a wrong text two years ago.

61-year-old Wanda Dench accidentally texted Jamal Hinton, who is now 19.

She thought she was texting her own grandson the Thanksgiving dinner plans.

The wrong text messages went viral on social media, and the two decided to meet in real life.

They had so much fun together that Hinton started joining Dench's family for Thanksgiving.

It’s a tradition they plan to continue, maybe with a change of venue in the future.

The unlikely friendship has also expanded beyond Dench and Hinton. Their loved ones have also become friends.
