West Warwick, Rhode Island On a Saturday night in early February 2020, Lindsey Sheely ordered a pizza delivery for her family.

Lindsey’s two-year-old son, Cohen, insisted on giving the delivery man a hug. “We get a lot of deliveries, and he never hugs the other delivery men or women, never mind run out the door to do so,” Lindsey told the Today show.
