Back in August, Montgomery, Texas native Roger Reissig, shared a special story with all of his Facebook friends. It was meant to be seen primarily by the people in his social circle. However, the story turned out to be so good that it actually went viral.
Roger talked about his father’s incredibly beautiful daily routine. While I know that may not sound interesting, when you see what it is, your heart is going to melt. In fact, you may even shed a tear a tear or two.
“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.” – Roger writes on Facebook.
- Roger goes on to say: “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 amazing man. The amount of love, respect, and character he has is just beautiful. We don’t see enough of it these days!
