"If we need to go to Rural King [a home and garden center], we go to Rural King," Donald added. "If we need to go to Walmart, we go to Walmart."

"Wherever I go he goes. He goes with me. He keeps me out of trouble."

Regarding this heartwarming friendship, Ethan's mother Jessica said, "It was an older gentleman. I just was not expecting it. It was neat."

When 13News' Reporter Kevin Rader asked Donald why this friendship works so well, he stated, "We don't argue, do we?"

"We just decide we are going to do something and if he don't like it, we forget about it. If he likes it, we do it."

At 91, Donald's wife and most of his friends have passed away and it can be a lonely time. Ethan is a blessing in his life, and with Donald's wisdom and kindness, he is a blessing in Ethan's life.
