An 82-year-old Wisconsin widower spent more than half his life with Betty, and didn’t want to let her go. So every day he walks to the park, brings a daisy, and talks to his wife on a bench he bought and dedicated to her after she died two years ago.

After it snowed in Fond du Lac a few weeks ago, Bud had to stay in his car and talk to Betty, reports WJDT-TV. “The previous year he had tried to make his way through the snow and fell; this winter he didn’t want to risk it.”

But, two Fond du Lac Parks employees who had noticed the man’s routine, decided to help.

Jerrod Ebert and Kevin Schultz grabbed shovels, saying, “We have to make sure he can get to his bench and talk to his wife.”

The two have vowed to continue servicing the path through the entire winter.
