Pizza delivery man gets an unexpected visit - and suddenly tears in his eyes

First of all, the question arises why an 89-year-old still has to deliver pizzas and cannot enjoy his retirement. The old man drives out the favorite Italian dish for the pizza giant Papa Johns so that he can make ends meet. But the senior carried out his job with absolute empathy. His friendly demeanor resulted in the man ultimately getting $ 12,000.

What happened? The Valdez family often ordered pizza, mostly asking about 89-year-old Derlin Nerwey because he was so nice to them. The family recorded the regular deliveries on video and posted them on the Internet. The videos went viral on the TikTok platform - and the Valdez family asked their viewers for donations.
