When you surf the internet as often as I do, there is not much that catches you by surprise. Even then there is not much that makes you go aww and just happy at the same time. But the story of Emmett and Erling is one of them. Emmett and Erling were next door neighbors who became friends that bonded when Emmett saw Erlings tomato plants. Emmetts parents knew of Erling and his family but never really talked to them till Emmett did. Erling and Emmett did everything friends today, race cars, play ball, draw and hang out together.
What makes this story special is that Emmett was only 3 and Erling was 89 when they became friends. They remained friends even after moving away from each other, Emmett to a new house and Erling to a senior apartment with his ailing wife. Emmett and Erling remained friends right up until Erlings demise in late October of last year at the ripe age of 91. Emmett visited his friend like he always did three days before Erling passed. Supposedly Erlings last words to Emmett were You are a good boy.
This story went viral when it was reported, garnering several million likes and shares. And I dont think it was just because Emmett was so cute, or Erling was just so adorable or that their friendship was unusual. I think it was because Emmett and Erlings story reminded everyone of the very core of being human the affection we have for one another without any boundaries or barriers whether it be age, gender or race. Emmett and Erlings story is just a testimony that sometimes the truest friendships come from unexpected people.
