When it comes to visiting lost loved ones in cemeteries, everyone has their traditions.
Some leave flowers, some read poems, and some just sit for a few hours and reminisce. These rituals are more about the living than the dead, since we all need to find ways to cope with devastating losses.
But have you ever seen something at a cemetery that left you scratching your head? That's the experience one Facebook user by the name of Dave Malefant had a few months ago when he saw a quarter sitting on top of a headstone.
While walking through the cemetery one day, this is what he encountered. When he went home to research the significance of this coin, he made a moving discovery. Check it out in the caption below!

I had no idea that a simple coin could symbolize so much.
Next time you're paying your respects and you see a quarter, dime, nickel, or penny on a headstone, pause for a second and say thank you to those who have served.
