Time for your daily dose, dear....

When Caroline Walter of Freiburg, Germany died at the age of 16, her sister Selma had a sculptor cast a life size sculpture for the gravestone. Every morning since Caroline's funeral, a fresh flower was found tucked in the crook of the arm, and still is to this day. Nobody knows who leaves it. Every single morning. Except Caroline died in 1867. For 145 years, someone(s) have been leaving flowers. Now that's devotion.

Victorian tear catchers, usually used by a widowed bride. Upon the day of the funeral, the widow would collect her tears into this small vile, and all the tears she cried in the first year over the loss of her husband, she would capture in this vile she would wear upon her neck. And on the anniversary of his death, she pours the preserved tears atop his gravesite.

A lacrimal, also known as a tear bottle, is used to catch the tears of the mourning. During the Victorian period of the 19th century, those who were mourning would collect their tears in the bottle with special stoppers that allowed the tears to evaporate. When the tears evaporated, the mourning period would end.
