Man Shocked To Discover What His Father Does When Visiting His Wife At The Cemetery (Photos)

Jake Reissig has kept up the same routine since losing his wife about a year ago. He visits her gravesite twice a day - every single day - and does his best to keep her site in tip top shape.

As LiftBump shares, his routine was documented by his son Roger on Facebook.

“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,” Roger wrote.

Jake’s routine got thrown off its tracks one day when he came across an inconsolable woman at the cemetery. He would check on the woman and strike up a conversation, and he would go on to find out that she had lost her husband back in 2010, and that he had served in the Air Force. After the woman departed, Jake knew exactly what to do.

“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,” Roger’s post continued.
