February 19, 2015 CAPSER, Wyoming – Two days before Valentine’s Day this year, Shelley Golay, a mother who lost her husband Jim to an inoperable brain tumor that was diagnosed last February, received a surprising and touching gift that will last the rest of her life.
When Shelley received a bouquet of flowers on February 12, she initially thought her children had sent her the flowers. After determining that wasn’t the case, she contacted the local flower shop, and the florist, Jessie Row, revealed the truth: that before he died, Jim made an arrangement with the flower shop to send his wife flowers every Valentine’s Day for the rest of her life.
Row told Fox, “We all started almost balling [sic], so it was really touching to… know that he had done that for her. It seems like something that only happens in the movies.”
When asked about the love she and her husband shared, Shelley said, “It was true love and you just don’t find that very often, you know, the fairytale romance, the knight in shining armor…even though we didn’t get a fairytale ending, it was amazing.” Truly, the phrase “until death do us part” does not apply in this story of true love that has no boundaries.
