Son Speechless To Discover Father Waters His Mother's Grave And A Soldier's Grave Every Day

Since his wife passed away around a year ago, Jake Reissig visits her gravesite almost every day, sometimes even twice a day. Jake cleans her headstone, waters, pulls weeds and keeps everything looking good.

After observing for many months, Jake’s son, Roger, decided to post about his faithful dad on his Facebook page.

Roger noted: “He has a routine where he clips some roses from his rose garden at home and delivers them to Mom,” he says.

He continued: “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.”

Jake’s routine was permanently altered one afternoon, however, when he saw a young woman kneeling at a nearby grave site, tears streaming down her face.

Jake spoke to her to see if she was alright and learned her story.

“Her husband had been an SSGT in the US Air Force and lost him in 2010,” Roger explains in his post. “After they talked and shared stories, she thanked him and left.”

Apparently inspired by the woman, Jake then added her husband’s grave to his daily maintenance routine.

These days Jake not only makes sure his wife’s resting spot is immaculate, but he also takes care of the grave of the fallen soldier.

Roger notes: “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.”
