Two City Workers Make it Easier for Elderly Man to Visit His Late Wife’s Memorial

With all of the evil that is taking place in the world today, it’s nice to take a break and read a heart-warming story. I personally cried when I read this story and I think at the very least, you’ll tear up as you read about this man’s devotion to his wife, and how two men worked to make his daily trip a little easier.

From The Blaze:

Jerrod Ebert and Kevin Schultz were sitting in their parked car earlier this year when they noticed something peculiar — an elderly man walking through a snow-covered park to reach a bench.

At first, the Wisconsin city workers were mystified.

“For most people, it’s a path to nowhere,” Ebert told the CBS Evening News. “It’s a path to somewhere for one person.”

The two workers quickly realized what was going on. The bench was a memorial to the man’s wife who had died a couple years ago.

“It took us both back a little bit thinking, my gosh, his devotion is that strong that he still comes when he can’t make it to the bench even,” Ebert told the CBS Evening News.

The two knew they had to help and decided to shovel the walkway to the bench. They’ve now been doing so for the past two months.

When Bud Caldwell went to pay respects to his wife, he was initially astonished.

“One day I pulled up there and there’s the walk shoveled,” explained Caldwell. “My knees about buckled on me.”

Caldwell told the CBS Evening News his wife loved the song “Daisy a Day.” So, in her memory, he got a bench dedicated to her and takes daisies each day to visit and sing to her.

But Caldwell never expected someone to go so far out of their way to help him.

This is a restoration of my faith in humanity. God bless these men.
