Things took a change last year when the family’s 3-year-old son, Emmett Rychner, struck up an unlikely friendship with 89-year-old Erling Kindem -- over tomatoes.“Erling grew some tomatoes in his yard and Emmett would always ask him, ‘Got any matoes?’” Bryan Rychner told ABC News.
"Erling grew up in Northfield and he goes there every week to meet up with other World War II veterans," Rychner said. "It won't be the same because we are not living next door to each other anymore, but we are definitely going to let the two reunite when we move."
