In the clip, the boy can be seen running out of the front door to hug Ryan Catterson as he leaves after delivering pizza. Lindsey Sheely said she ordered a pizza to her Rhode Island home on Saturday night. After the delivery driver left, her young son, Cohen chased after him and gave him a hug. While it may look as an adorable video, there is more to it. After posting the video on social media, the boy's mother got in touch with the delivery man and found out that the hug was quite special to him as he had recently lost his daughter.

Boy Hugs Pizza Delivery Man Who Recently Lost Daughter:
She later updated the Facebook post saying, "Update: 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." Sheely's post also included a link to a GoFundMe page to cover the 16-year-old's funeral expenses. Ryan told WLNE-TV the road ahead will be tough, as he'll never be able to hug his daughter again.
