A simple gesture of love and an act of kindness can change lives in the blink of an eye. Such moments can warm hearts in ways it has never before. A moment like that was captured on a camera, where a 2-year-old boy named Cohen is seen hugging a pizza delivery man named Ryan Catterson before letting him go with a peck on the cheek.
Lindsey Sheely, a makeup entrepreneur who lives in West Warwick, Rhode Island ordered a pizza on a Saturday night for her and her family. Soon as the pizza guy had arrived at the porch, Cohen had raced to the porch with his mother Lindsey hot on the trail. But next what happened was the sweetest thing ever seen.
Cohen was hugging the delivery man Ryan and refusing to let go but Ryan too hugs him back. Shocked but heart touched by her son’s gesture, Lindsey had posted the video on Instagram and as time passed it had gone viral.
Catterson had seen the video and immediately got in contact with the Sheely family to tell how that hug had meant the world to him that night. As he had mentioned the loss of his 16-year-old daughter Alyssa, due to mental health issues.
Ryan had described the hug as a “little blessing from God” and that night felt like his daughter was there and that moment was beyond words for him and his family.
It has been said that Ryan and his family have started a GoFundMe page to cover his daughter’s funeral expenses, with the support of the Sheely family.
