A US army officer identified as Anthony W. Williams Jr. has taken to social media to celebrate his grandmother on her 90th birthday and appreciate her for the role she played in his life.
Taking to his LinkedIn page, Anthony said his father was sent to prison when he was going into middle school and his mum instantly became a single parent working two to three jobs to make ends meet.
Anthony's grandmother wouldn't sit back and allow her grandkids suffer, and so she ensured that the man and his little sisters were fed, sheltered and educated.
