How Does Someone Do This For 20 Years And No One Noticed Til Now? My Heart Shattered.

For the past 20 years, a man named Roque “Rocky” Abalsamo did something every day that is simply heartbreaking. In 1993, his wife of 35 years, Julia “Julita” Echeverria Abalsamo, passed away. Ever since that day, he diligently sat by her grave in St. Joseph Cemetery in Boston, MA. He didn’t eat. He didn’t drink. All Rocky did was brave the heat, rain, cold and snow to be by his wife’s side.

Rocky had been with Julita since 1937, and he never wanted to experience day without her.

The couple met in the 1930s in their native Buenos Aires. Rocky simply heard Julita talking to her friends and realized that he needed to know the person he heard, a woman full of so much love and goodness. Basically, since that moment, the two had been together. They lived a happy life together, marrying the spring after they had met. They had two children, who they eventually followed to the United States.

He must have missed the memo that we die first BECAUSE WE WANT TO. Dang. Oh, well, He could get up with the kids or something, I mean, why did he have them in the first place?

Maybe he's just a little "off".
