WWII veteran and toddler: Friends for life

  • 3-year-old boy and 89-year-old neighbor are best friends
  • They play together almost every day
  • Both are moving soon

In a small Minnesota town, a three-year-old boy and an 89-year-old World War II veteran live next door to each other. But they're more than just neighbors.

Emmett Rychner and Erling Kindem are the best of friends, almost inseparable. They play together every day, enjoying each other's company on everything from croquet to baseball to racing through the yard, Erling on his lawn tractor and Emmett on his toy model.

And they're savoring every moment, because both are moving away soon.

Mike Galanos and Christi Paul bring you this heart-warming story from affiliate KARE.
