Toddler Hugs Pizza Delivery Guy Who Just Lost Teenage Daughter

A toddler from Rhode Island unintentionally made a grieving pizza delivery man’s night when he rushed to hug him on February 15.

Footage by Lindsey Sheely, from West Warwick, shows the moment her two-year-old son Cohen ran out to embrace delivery man Ryan Catterson.

The hug meant more to Catterson than Sheely could ever have imagined: he’d lost his teenage daughter.

“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,” Sheely wrote on Facebook.

A GoFundMe page has since been set up to help with funeral expenses for Catterson’s daughter. Credit: Lindsey Sheely via Storyful
