Lonnie has passed. Lonnie is the husband of the grandmother from Arizona Wanda who went viral after she accidentally invited the wrong teenager to Thanksgiving and ended up spending the holiday with him, has reportedly died after he contracted the novel coronavirus. 

Previously reported. The grandmother who befriended a stranger after she accidentally invited him to Thanksgiving dinner  has contracted coronavirus. Lonnie is in the hospital fighting for his life and Wanda is so at the moment because she is at home with respiratory infection. The video did not mention if Wanda had COVID-19 so I will only say she has a respiratory infection. Jamal did both had COVID 19 in the tweet. Wanda The Viral Grandma is heartbroken but praying that Lonnie will get better and be home soon.

Jamal Hinton posted on twitter that both Wanda Dench, his ‘honorary grandmother’, and her husband Lonnie Dench from Arizona, had both contracted the disease and that Mr Dench has been hospitalised.

“I am so sad to announce that Wanda and Lonnie both have Covid-19 and that Lonnie is currently in the hospital fighting both Covid and Pneumonia please send words of love and encouragement their way,” he wrote.

Rather than ignore the unknown number, Mr Hinton continued the conversation and the pair sent each other selfies.
