Family Uses Crossword Puzzle To Reveal Epic Surprise On Mom’s 70th Birthday

Family uses crossword puzzle to reveal epic surprise for mom's 70th birthday

Crossword puzzle shows Across and Down how much Willie Hill and her sisters are loved

Willie Hill has a big birthday coming up on Thursday, December 5th.

Her family has been scheming for awhile on an epic surprise to celebrate the important milestone.

Cousins combined funds to send Willie and her three sisters to Puerto Rico.

That would be awesome enough, but how to tell her and her sisters?

A custom puzzle seemed a natural way to do it since Willie is a huge crossword fan.

Here is the actual crossword puzzle filled in with the clues.

Talk about families working together for the greater good.

Daughter Cheryl Hill explains how this all came together, “My sister, Deidre Tolbert came up with the idea and reached out to my siblings who all agreed. She then reached out to my cousins and asked if they wanted to send their moms. My cousin Kawana Fields paid for her mom, Bessie Griffin (left on the video). My cousin, Ronald Allen paid for his mom, Deborah Forte (right on video). Not shown is my Aunt Geraldine and her kids, Tameka Zachery and Ramique Thomas paid for her.

The sisters better get packing!

They leave Friday!

Happy Birthday, Willie!
