Betty was the light of Burt’s life for 56 years, and that continued after her passing away just before her 80th birthday. Burt bought a park bench to commemorate Betty and began leaving one penny and one daisy there every day.
These seemingly strange tokens were a tribute to their favorite love songs: “Daisy a Day” and “Pennies From Heaven”. He wanted to show her he’d never forget.
Last winter a snow storm hit the Wisconsin town where they lived, making it near impossible for Bud to make his memorial trips.
That’s when two park employees realized the daisies and pennies were missing. They knew they had to do something, and what they did brought Burt to tears.
