HOUSTON, Texas — Call him grandson of the year. Houston-native, Stefun Darts, 24, saved up to give his grandparents the surprise of a lifetime.

According to KHOU, Darts skipped parties and ate microwave pizzas to help him achieve a beautiful goal. He was able to give his grandparents a $15,000 check to pay off the mortgage on their home.

Darts wrote on Facebook:

“I promised God in the second grade I would pay off you guys house and help you retire. A promise I would never break. The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, nor touched… but are felt by the heart.

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. I couldn’t stand you going to work at night, some nights I didn’t even sleep knowing it shouldn’t be like this. Never have I wrote a check wanting this to be the first one. To all my friends that stood by me over these last 6 years I appreciate you.

Somethings was never said and I’m glad you guys had enough sense to understand I had something greater to complete. GP| GG Take this check and pay your house off, and retire from work. Y’all owe no man but God. Even copped y’all some tickets to The Bahamas 🌴🌼 I’ll sacrifice everything for my la familia. P.S – Avaricious. The secret is within.



The emotional surprise was caught on video. “I couldn’t believe it. To have a grandson like that is a blessing,” Darts’ grandmother, Marilyn Roberts, told KHOU.
