Harmon lives in Norman, Oklahoma, had grilled burgers for his six grandkids but only one showed up to his house.

Now, his grandkids have promised they are making it up to him.

His 20-year-old grandson, Brock, took him to a softball game to watch another of Harmon’s grandchild play. Brock wants everyone to know he really truly loves his “Papaw.”

The 66-year-old’s photo was then taken by his granddaughter Kelsey, 19, and posted on social media.

She couldn’t believe no one showed up. "Dinner with papaw tonight,” she caption. “He made 12 burgers for all six grandkids and I’m the only one who showed. Love him.”
