A devoted, lonely widower gets a song in his heart from the kindness of strangers

Two city workers have been giving their time this winter for a lonely widower, in an act of kindness warm enough to melt Wisconsin snow.

According to CBS News, city workers Jerrod Ebert and Kevin Schultz stumbled across a park bench early this winter with a memorial of a woman named Betty Caldwell in Fond Du Lac, Wis.

The path was heavily blocked by snow, but the workers had seen an elderly man who parked nearby. After connecting the dots, they realized what the man was there for.

Ebert and Schultz decide to clear the walkway so the stranger could visit his wife’s memorial bench — and have been keeping it clear through the winter snows.

Bud and Betty Caldwell were married for 55 years until she died, and all he wanted to do was give her a daisy because she had loved the song “Daisy a Day.”

The workers told CBS it just felt like the right thing to do.

And hope springs eternal.
