Six Teens Do This With Veteran's Body After He Passes, Funeral Home Stunned

When Navy veteran Jerry Wayne Pino passed away in December, funeral home worker Cathy Warden was pretty upset to learn that the man had no family to honor his memory. As Fox News reports, that led her to put the wheels in motion to get this vet a proper sendoff, and some awesome teens stepped up to the plate to help out.

Warden works at the Riemann Family Funeral Homes in Long Beach, Mississippi, and Pino’s body lay unclaimed for several weeks. She knew something had to be done.

“Something had to be done with respect. We had to give him what he deserved. Nobody should go alone,” she explained.

That led her and a colleague, Eva Boomer, to put their heads together, and they came up with the solution of reaching out to the local high school to see if any students would be willing to step up and serve as pallbearers. Several students answered the call, and Pino received the final respects he deserved.

“It was the right thing to do. He served our country. He fought for our rights. For him to be buried with nobody there was just sad. I told myself I was going to do it and I did it,” explained student Bailey Griffin.
