Saturday night, when we got our pizza (and ranch) delivered, Cohen ran out to hug the delivery guy and tried to give him a kiss, too! ? We thought it was so sweet and funny, then realized that our doorbell might have caught the interaction on camera, and it did!! I hope it gives you a laugh and warms your heart like it did for us ?❤️ Even better, is that I posted this to my IG stories that night and somehow, it found it’s way to the man who delivered our pizza! Little did we know what Cohen’s hug to this stranger would mean. Someone showed Ryan the video I posted to my IG, so he messaged me, and I found him on FB so he could share the video. Through this, we found out that Ryan unexpectedly lost his daughter recently, and that hug from Cohen was a little blessing from God. I believe in divine appointments and know that Ryan was the one to deliver our pizza for a reason. Please keep him and his family in prayer! ❤️ #nbc10providence
Pizza delivery man Ryan Catterson was delivering pizza to a family in West Warwick, Rhode Island not realizing he was the one who was about to get the best delivery of all.
WLNE reports Lindsey Sheely shared an adorable video clip captured on her Ring doorbell camera.
It shows her little boy running out to insist on giving Catterson a hug after he delivers his family’s pizza.
Sheely posted it on Instagram thinking it was a cute moment to share.
It was only after posting the video that Sheely learned the real story behind the story.
That Catterson’s 16-year-old daughter had recently passed away unexpectedly.
That he was really hurting.
That he needed something, anything to get him through his evening.
That hug was everything.
Out of the arms of babes.
“After losing my daughter this past week, it touched me because it was like she was there,” Ryan Catterson said. “It really just meant a lot to me.”-Ryan Catterson
That we never really know what anyone is going through.
That a hug,
A simple act of kindness can change someone’s day.
Maybe even save a life.
Catterson told WLNE, “After losing my daughter this past week, it touched me because it was like she was there,” Ryan Catterson said. “It really just meant a lot to me.”
