When the sun was blazing and grass was drying up, a touching story was shared by Roger Reissig via Facebook.

It was out of true love, adoration, and a knowledge that love still continues after this life. Mr. Reissig’s sacrifice to go out and water his wife’s grave twice daily for the last year teaches us all that love continues on after death. Originally on Facebook, his story soon went viral. Roger gives an account of the awe-inspiring daily routine of his father, a true sprinkler man. What might seem an ordinary task to him is truly an extraordinary act of devotion.

“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 the only graves getting watered, you can see that Moms stands out from the rest and is very beautiful.” – Roger writes on Facebook.

One scorching summer day while at his wife’s grave, Mr. Reissig noticed a lady nearby with tears in her eyes. He quickly went and offered some words of comfort. He learned that the grave she knelt at held her brother, an SSGT in the US Air Force, who had been taken several years before. After this run in with the family of the soldier, Mr. Reissig, the true sprinkler man, took it upon himself to water the grave of this veteran every day as well as his wife’s.

This is just one story of a remarkable man who decided to do something as simple as watering a grave to honor veterans and loved ones. Though it can be hard to let go, we can always have that love that continues on after this life. God’s love fills the immensity of space; therefore, there is no shortage of love in the universe, only in our willingness to do what is needed to feel it. To do this, Jesus explained we must “love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, … soul, … strength, and … mind; and thy neighbor as thyself” (Luke 10:27).  -From Author of Other side of Heaven.
