Last week. Kelsey Harmon tweeted a photo of her grandpa who was disappointed that only one of his six grandkids showed up to dinner.

"We are not a big family on the publicity,” family member Rodney Harmon said. “It’s kinda been hectic. We’ve been busy getting stuff ready for this cookout. There are folks here from Pennsylvania, Virginia, New York, California, Germany."
“I’ve always been one who thought the Internet was a place where you say what you want. You don’t have to act on, but the Internet stepped up today and showed my father they do care about the elderly," said Ryan Harmon.
All six grandchildren were at the cookout too.
