Since August, 93 year-old Vinto Scarabello can often be found at Saint Peter's Cemetery in Fresno, California.

It's there he visits the final resting spot of his late wife Norma, to whom he was married to for nearly 64-years.

According to KMPH-TV, Scarabello often brings flowers with him to the cemetery.

He claims it doesn't matter the variety, the flowers often turn purple - his late wife’s favorite color.

Scarabello says, "We bought the chrysanthemums after the funeral and kept them here for two weeks. I brought them home kept them on the kitchen counter and in two weeks they started turning a little purple, a little darker. They got solid purple - as dark as they could be."

Scarabello says it's also happened with other flowers.

"There was one red rose bud - red as can be. I brought it here on a Sunday. The following Sunday, we come here, what a surprise - the red bud was purple."

Scarabello tells KMPH that after speaking with a priest about what he believes is a miracle and a sign from his late wife, he has returned to church.

"I enjoy that I joined the church again! I really enjoy it."
