The card on Shelly Golay's Valentine's Day rose bouquet read,
Stay Strong! Yours Forever, Love Jim.
And Jim, who was diagnosed with cancer last winter before dying of a brain tumor in July, made sure Golay never forgets how much he loved her.
KCWY reports before his death, the Casper, Wyoming man arranged a Valentine's Day delivery for each year Golay lives, as a sweet token of his affection.
Jessie Row, an employee of the floral shop that filled Golay's order, told KCWY she was astonished to receive a very emotional call from the mourning woman.
[Golay] called the other day, we all almost started bawling... It was really touching to hear the story and know that he had done that for her. It [seems] like something that only happens in the movies or that you hear about.
Golay's Valentine's Day just took on a whole new meaning.
