A video showing a two year old boy hugging a pizza delivery driver who recently lost his daughter went viral.
The family’s doorbell camera shows bell boy Ryan Catterson delivering a pizza to Lindsey Sheely’s home on Saturday night when his little son runs to hug him.
Lindsey said to NBC Montana, “While Ryan was leaving, my son came by suddenly, ran out the door and raised his arms and gave Ryan a big hug. Ryan just leaned against it, he was really cute, really sweet. My son even tried to kiss him. “
Subsequently, he uploaded the moving video on Instagram to let his friends know what little Cohen had done.
He added, “I was laughing at it like,” Oh, my God, Cohen just hugged this delivery guy. Is it probably like OK? “
“Someone saw that I published it and spoke to Ryan, who contacted me. It’s like, ‘I think you were your pizza chef would you mind if I shared it?'”
LIndsey was more than happy to share it and the two became friends on Facebook, and that’s when she understood what the hug meant to him.
Lindsey explained, “I went to his Facebook page and saw that he recently lost his daughter. He shared that the hug meant a lot more to him and that he really needed a hug.”
It was then that he realized that Ryan’s daughter unexpectedly died a little over a week ago.
“That hug we thought was something nice and fun actually meant a lot more,” he added.
“I couldn’t believe this guy was going through the most devastating thing, but his life still went on. His life had to go on, and he still had to work and do his job. You never know what people are going through. This is a good example of this. “
Speaking with NBC 10, Ryan said his other children live outside the state.
He said, “Just that it was the perfect time, I was telling my kids and the whole family how much I needed hugs before they arrived and then that sweet little boy gave me one,” said Catterson. “It was almost as if the universe or my daughter had known and sent it to me.”
Other members of Ryan’s family even contacted Lindsey to thank her for the video.
He added: “If I had been afraid to let Cohen run away from the door because we don’t know this man, and it’s the world we live in, then we would have missed this whole touching moment that really had an impact not only on Ryan’s life. , but my whole family and mine. “
