When this loyal grandson makes a promise for his grandparents, he keeps it. And this one promise he made several years ago changed their lives.
College student Stefun Darts declared in the second grade that he would help his grandparents pay off their $15,000 mortgage, to make sure they no longer had to go to work late at night, and that they were comfortable and secure for the rest of their lives. This turned out to be no easy task.
Darts held down a full-time job while studying, and ran two non-profits. He lived off of microwave meals and avoided going out too often to save up the money. But he finally came through--not only by paying off their mortgage but also by buying them tickets to the Bahamas. And giving his shocked and overwhelmed grandparents the check proved to be worth all the trouble.
In his now-viral Facebook post, he wrote, "Even with this, I could never repay you for what you’ve done for me. I sacrificed my teenage and early adulthood of not having fun for this moment."
He wrote, "I don’t do this for accolades. To see tears of joy, to experience that in a lifetime, it’s like how many people can say that?"
