When a cemetery worker found a coin placed on someone’s grave, he was confused. When he did some investigating, however, he quickly new he had to share his emotional discovery on Facebook.
According to Q Political, Dave Malenfant is an employee of the National Cemetery in Holly, Michigan, where his main responsibility at the cemetery for fallen soldiers is to clean their stones. It was while he was doing this one day that he noticed a quarter on top of one, and he was immediately curious.
Malenfant took some photos and then went online to investigate, and what he found is truly touching.
“A coin left on a headstone lets the deceased soldiers family know that somebody stopped by to pay their respect. Leaving a penny means you visited. A nickel means that you and the deceased soldier trained at boot camp together. If you served with the soldier, you leave a dime. A quarter is very significant because it means that you were there when that soldier died,” Malenfant explained on Facebook.
