Bud Caldwell spent a lovely 56 years together his wife Betty before she passed away at the age of 79. Every day since then, he’s brought one daisy and a penny to the bench he bought in memory of her.
The penny and daisy each pay tribute to a couple of their favorite love songs — “Daisy a Day” and “Pennies from Heaven.”
Last winter brought some rough conditions to his Wisconsin town of Fond du Lac, and Bud couldn’t make his daily trip. There was too much ice for him to make it there safely.
It’s that time that a couple of park employees noticed he didn’t arrive those days, and they decided to do something rather remarkable. When Bud arrived again after the ice had cleared, he saw their act of kindness for himself and was brought to tears.
