Wanda Dench and Jamal Hinton celebrate their 6th Thanksgiving dinner together after she mistakenly texted him thinking he was her grandson

6 years ago Wanda Dench thought she was sending a text to one of her grandchildren inviting them over for Thanksgiving dinner.

Instead she sent it to Jamal Hinton, who was a 17-year-old stranger at the time. 

Despite being told she had sent it to the wrong person, she still extended her invite after Jamal asked if ‘he could still get a plate?’

This year marks Wanda and Jamal’s 6th Thanksgiving dinner together. 

Sadly Wanda’s husband Lonnie passed away in April 2020 from complications of Covid-19. He was married to Wanda for 43 years and became close friends with Jamal.
