10. Army Veteran
This is the unfortunate story of Tom Moore, Army veteran who passed away after a five-year battle with cancer. War veterans are considered heroes and should be given military honors until their death, right? But this veteran received otherwise.
Tom’s widow Whendy Moore, buried her husband at the Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery in St. Louis County on a Friday. It was heartbreaking to the family but somehow they are also relieved that Tom no longer had to suffer. But when Whendy visits her husband’s grave the next day, she couldn’t bare what she saw.
9. Floating Casket
Still mourning for her husband’s loss, Whendy went to visit his grave the next day, Saturday afternoon. But when she saw the condition of her husband’s grave, her heartache was doubled.
She said, “We thought we’d see mud, you know we knew it had rained the night before.” said Whendy. “But to see the casket and the vault floating on water in this little spot- it was well shown- and we assumed the casket was wet too. We just didn’t know”.
8. Open Wounds All Over Again
Whendy Moore says officials at the cemetery told her that rain caused the ground around the grave to wash away, unburying her husband’s casket and her sense of closure.
“We thought we had closure the other day and then we viewed him again, seen” said Moore. “It was a little eerie I suppose and it was very emotional. We went through all the same emotions that we did the last time we saw him” she said.
7. Painful Memories
Tom Moore was a decorated Army veteran who died on Tuesday after a five-year battle with cancer. His body was then buried on a Friday. There was so much love and respect for Tom from his family, friends, and colleagues. Despite the struggle with cancer, he remained strong for his family.
This war veteran has served his country well and his memories will remain with his family forever. But the injustice he received was just not worthy of someone like this who is considered a hero.
