“Her dear friend decided to take my beloved Grandma on the cruise after originally planning to go with her recent husband whom passed away during the pandemic,” he captioned a sweet video of her arriving at the Fort Lauderdale Airport on March 5.
“It was a process to do it all after finagling my hectic work day/week, the start to my EMT classes, getting a flat tire, moving into my new home, and my transition moving from Los Angeles to Miami,” he continued. “However, somehow I make it work for those that I love, deserve it, and appreciate those efforts since they do the same for me.”
