Mother Couldn't Understand Why Her Son's Grave Was So Green And Then Cried When She Found Out Why.
Strangers No More
Jake's extraordinary gesture touched Raymond and Rachel, but they had an idea how to thank him, so instead, they gave him a big hug. Rachel couldn't believe that a stranger who had never met her son took the time to care for her son's plot. What Rachel didn't realize was that Joseph and Jake weren't strangers at all. But how was that possible?
It's In His Nature
Now Jake has two people to talk to when he visits the cemetery; his wife Betty, and Joseph, whom he calls Joe. Of course, this is just the kind of guy he is, according to Jake's son, Roger, who claims his dad's affection for Joe is similar to the way he treated his wife and kids. But Roger wanted to make sure his dad's gesture went viral.
The Inspiring Tale
Roger decided to share his father's story on Facebook. Not only did he thank Joseph for his service to our country, but also expressed pride in his dad for honoring him the way he does. Of course, Roger knows how important family is and how quickly someone can be get taken away. In fact, he had a recent scare with one of his own kids.
Last month, three armed robbers burst into a jewelry store in Conroe, Texas, where Roger's daughter, Shae, works. Fortunately, it was Shae's day off, but Roger knows how badly things could have turned out if she had been there. Jake understood his son's fears because he has a strong bond with all his grandkids. In return, they have a leading example of what true love is like in their grandparents, as this photo totally proves.
Married To An Angel

Diane, who's one of Jake's daughters, posted a photo of her parents' 6th wedding anniversary. She also wrote that her parents "are still married... Mon just lives in heaven." Clearly, anyone who's ever met this family can appreciate that what Jake and Betty had was everlasting love.
