Kelly said the bond between her son and her neighbor developed organically after Brian kept seeing Cravens out working on his yard.

“Everywhere [Cravens] turns around there's Brian,” she said. “They just developed a friendship and bond.”

Cravens' 16-year-old daughter, Molly, told BuzzFeed News her family has been touched by the bond between the two as well.

“The fact that he started to cling on to my dad is just the sweetest thing,” she said. “We love having Brian around and love seeing how happy they make each other.”
