Get ready for the most heartwarming part of your day. There’s just something about unlikely friendships that is so beautiful. When two-year-old Deacon Ross is asked who his best friend is, he does not hesitate in answering. Deacon struck up a special friendship with O Dee the garbage man on his family’s route. The pair have the most adorable friendship that was unfortunately forced to come to a bittersweet end because Deacon’s family is moving to a different neighborhood.
The video begins by showing Deacon helping his mother make a gift basket so they can give it to O Dee later when he comes by the house. It’s obvious just from listening to Deacon talk about his best friend that he really has a love for O Dee. The minute that O Dee pulls up on the back of a garbage truck, Deacon’s entire face lights up. The friends share a few special moments together before Deacon and his mom give O Dee his present and say goodbye. While it pained me to see Deacon having to bid farewell to his best friend, I still walked away from this video smiling over their special relationship.
