Stranger Pays for Florida Child's Tombstone

Thanks to the generosity of a Mississippi man, a Fort Walton Beach mother now has marker for her 12-year-old son's grave.

Ray Anthony Washington Jr. died in a car accident a little over a year ago. He was buried without a monument.

When Darren Versiga of Pascagoula, Mississippi heard the family's story, the private investigator donated the tombstone and presented it to the family on Christmas Eve. Versiga and his wife founded Guardian Angels, an organization that provides tombstones for children.

Joanne Faulkner, Washington's mother, said she had never dreamed someone could care so much about a child he never met.
