His heart failing, Erling Kindem held tight to his best friend’s hand as he told him softly, “You’re a good boy.” Days later the WW II veteran, whose friendship with a three-year-old boy became a social media sensation, passed away at the nursing home where he’d been receiving hospice care. … Emmett [Rycher]’s parents broke the news to their son on Saturday afternoon that Erling had died. Emmett hugged his mom and dad and let the words sink in. He then told his parents, “‘We’re just going to have to wait a really long time and then we’ll see him again in heaven,'” Anika recalled. “He believes that and we believe that.”
