They were bought anonymously and donated to families who weren't able to buy one.

Now, that anonymous donor has been revealed -- and the families are grateful for him.

Albany plastic surgeon Dr. Steven Lynch and his wife Linda have put nearly $70,000 into a remembrance memorial fund to donate the grave markers for families.
