He Dedicated A Park Bench To His Wife. When He Couldn’t Get To It, Look What Happens!Paul Reyburn
Ever since his wife Betty passed away, Bud Caldwell visits a park bench, daisy and penny in hand, that he bought and dedicated to her. The gifts are tributes to two songs that the couple loved during their fifty-six years together : “Daisy a Day,” and “Pennies from Heaven.”
Recently, the snowy and icy conditions made it nearly impossible for Bud to make the trip to the park. The snow-covered walkways were too dangerous to cross, but Caldwell, who lives in Fond du Lac, WI, continued making the daily trips by car.
One day, when two park workers noticed Caldwell was unable to deliver his gifts to his beloved wife, they decided to help shovel the walkway to Betty’s bench. They will do this for the rest of winter.
