WATCH: 2-Year-Old Says Sweetest Goodbye To His Best Friend, The Local Garbage Man

For 2-year-old Deacon Ross, friendship is more than skin color, age, occupation — it’s truly about love. His best friend happens to be O Dee, the local garbage man whose route includes the Ross’ household.

Every Friday, Deacon sets up his little lawn chair and eagerly waits for O Dee’s truck to make its way down the Ross’ street. When O Dee finally pulls up, he jumps off the back of the truck to give Deacon a fist bump and a good chat. Watching Deacon’s face light up when he’s around O Dee is so heartwarming!

The occasion for the video below is bitter-sweet, however. That’s because Deacon is going to be a big brother soon, which means the Ross’ have to move into a bigger house. They won’t see O Dee anymore, so they wanted to throw a little going away party for the two best friends.

But he will always be remembered by Deacon because they are naming their new son O Dee in his honor! Watch the video below to see Deacon and O Dee’s final time together and share this if you are inspired by their amazing friendship!
