Bud and Betty Caldwell spent 56 blissful years together before Betty passed away just before her 80th birthday. Every day since Betty’s death, the heartbroken Bud began leaving one daisy and one penny on a park bench he bought and dedicated to her.
The simple gifts paid tribute to their favorite love songs, “Daisy a Day” and “Pennies From Heaven.” The keepsakes were his way to show Betty he would never let her down.
But in winter, the snowy and icy conditions in Fond du Lac, WI, made it nearly impossible for Bud to make his daily trip to the park bench. The walkways were too snow-covered and dangerous for him to safely cross.
That’s when two male park employees noticed the elderly man was unable to deliver his gifts to his late wife. Instead of ignoring the sad situation, they decided to do something incredible.
After Bud discovered the random act of kindness from the two kind park workers, Bud was brought to tears.
