It’s really tough to lose a loved one especially if you’ve spent the majority of your life with them. Coping from their loss is a difficult task which is why some people who have lost their relatives are often plunged into depression. However, one man found a different way to commemorate the memory of his dearly departed wife.
Roger Reissig took to Facebook to show everyone how his father copes with the loss of his wife. According to Roger, his dad would go to his wife’s grave and water it twice every day.
One day, he saw a woman sobbing at the grave beside where his wife rests.
As it turns out, the grave belongs to the woman’s husband who served in the US Air Force but lost in battle in 2010.
In order to thank him for his services, Roger’s dad did something amazing.
Read the full story below:
“It's been over a year now since Mom left us to go to her Heavenly home. Dad goes out to the grave to visit her twice a day. He has a routine where he clips some roses from his rose garden at home and delivers them to Mom. Then he hooks up a hose and waters her grass twice daily. With the recent drought, and hers being one of only graves getting watered, you can see that Moms stands out from the rest and is very beautiful.
One day while watering he saw a young lady down from him kneeling at a grave and crying uncontrollably. Dad went down and talked with her and found that her husband had been an SSGT in the US Air Force and lost him in 2010. After they talked and shared stories, she thanked him and left. Dad decided to Honor this soldier and start watering his grass along with Moms daily. He does it every day. He said it is the least he can do for him after all that he sacrificed for us. You can see his green grass in the pictures down from Moms. Very thankful for this young Man's service and very proud of my Dad and what he does to Honor him. Love you Dad!”
