A local Vancouver Island man,
heads to the Royal Oak Burial Park near Victoria, B.C.
He's been doing it for over a year.
No one has ever asked him to do it,
he does it on his own.
Howie who is disabled and
spends everyday cleaning headstones.
No pay, his own materials, his own time.
To date: Howie has cleaned over 3500 head stones out of 140,000.
He also adds a service to what he is doing, he will clean a stone of a dearly departed one prior to a visitation at no extra charge.
His father is buried there. This year, his son was killed in an accident, overseas.
He had no money to bring his body back to Canada.
The funeral director, with her connections made it happen for him.
Two beautiful people.
