Editor's Note: I love imagining the moment between Grandson and Grandmother when Allen goes to personally invite Diantha to his wedding. Presumably, Grandma already knows all about the engagement and the forthcoming nuptials. She would have been privy to the courtship details since the family was so close both geographically but more importantly emotionally. Allen was forever doing jobs for grandma and visiting her. I believe he was just following protocol and that is very touching.
