Jamal went viral in 2016 when he shared an adorable exchange he had with Wanda when she texted him thinking she was reaching out to her grandchild. Wanda wanted to invite her grandson to Thanksgiving dinner, but when she realized she was talking to a stranger, she invited him anyway. Jamal updated his followers with a lovely snap he took of both of them during the Thanksgiving celebration.

While it could have ended there with a lovely dinner, the following year, Jamal was invited to be a guest at Wanda’s house again. For the past 4 years, Jamal has been spending Thanksgiving dinner with Wanda’s family and their wholesome friendship has filled everyone’s hearts with joy.
