  • If you found out you had a brain tumor or some other terminal health problem, would you do something special to share your love with your spouse long after you have died?

  • That's what one man did when he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. Shelly Golay's husband, Jim, passed away several months prior to Valentine's Day, but he still sent her flowers so she would remember him and his love for her on this holiday about love.

  • When she first received the flowers, she thought they were from her kids even though the card read - "Happy Valentine's Day, Honey. Stay strong! Yours Forever, Love Jim." Upon inquiry, she discovered this was not the case. The flower shop told her that before Jim died, he arranged for her favorite flowers - an assortment of roses - to be sent to her every Valentine's Day until she dies. "That's just a testament of his love all over again," said Shelly.

  • Undoubtedly, love can last forever. As writer, Richard Bach, said, "True love stories never have endings."
