'I don’t know, I’m sure he’s busy but I don’t know why he doesn’t stay in contact with at least his grandmother, but she doesn’t hear from him.'

Visit - Mary - Ann - Time - Shawnee

Recalling the visit Mary Ann added: 'The last time he came to Shawnee was the spring before the twins [Knox and Vivienne] were born [in 2008] it was around the time of his grandmother’s birthday.'
