Student Surprises Grandparents With Paid-Off Mortgage
Lifestyle| | By Lauren Boudreau
It’s the gift we all dream of: a paid-off mortgage. Even if you don’t have a mortgage, you still probably fantasize about that sense of relief of paying it off once you have one. (It’s not weird. Don’t worry.)
This dream came true for a couple in Texas when their grandson decided to surprise them with a gift they never saw coming.
Stefun Darts saved up $15,000 in order to pay off his grandparents’ mortgage by working full time, in addition to being a student. He also runs a non-profit called Caring Heart Youth.
“I couldn’t believe it,” said Marilyn Roberts, Stefun’s grandmother, to K5 News. “To have a grandson like that is a blessing.”
Darts reportedly ate microwave pizza for months on end and never went out in order to save enough money.
In addition to the home, however, Darts also gave his grandparents a trip to the Bahamas.
“I don’t do this for accolades,” Darts said. “To see tears of joy, to experience that in a lifetime, it’s like how many people can say that?”
