Now this is an unlikely friendship! Two-year-old Deacon Ross looks forwards to Fridays and not because it’s the beginning of the weekend! Fridays are trash day. That means Deacon gets to see his best friend, OD, his family’s garbage man. Deacon even has a toy truck that matches OD’s real work truck!
Deacon is going to become a big brother, so when his parents bought a bigger house, they found out OD would no longer be their garbage man. Deacon’s mom wanted to give the two friends a goodbye they would remember, so she helped Deacon put together a gift basket to give to his BFF.
Since OD is her son’s first friend, Deacon’s mom says that their relationship has taught her son what friendship really is. You can tell just how excited the boy is when he exclaims,”OD is coming! OD is coming!” when he hears the garbage truck down the block.
When OD gets off his truck they exchange knuckles and give each other a big hug. OD was asked if he knows how much the little boy loves him, and OD says, “I didn’t know, but I can see it.” Deacon even wants to name his new little brother after his friend!
Watch the heartwarming goodbye below!
