When Roger Reissig posted some pictures of his dad’s daily routine, he didn’t think anyone outside of his circle of friends and family would see them. However, the story he shared touched so many hearts that the photos have since gone viral.

The pictures show Roger’s dad watering a plot at the cemetery.

Roger explains:

“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!”

What an incredibly beautiful way to honor not only his beloved wife, but also a man who gave his life for his country.
