89-year-old Erling Kindem usually kept to himself. In fact, for almost ten years of living next to each other, Bryan and Anika Rychner barely spoke to their elderly neighbor.
Last year, that all changed when the Rychner’s 2-year-old son Emmett decided to pay Erling a visit.
“They kind of bonded over the tomatoes in his garden because Emmett loves tomatoes,” mom Ankia recalled.
“Every time he saw me out there he would come running over…’Erling, got any ‘matoes?'” Erling remembers fondly.
And the rest as they say is history. Watch the heartwarming video of their amazing friendship.
