CHEYENNE -- After being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor last year -- one husband immediately arranged a plan for his wife to always remember him on Valentine's Day.

It's not uncommon for a husband to send his wife flowers on Valentine's Day.

But for Shelly Golay, this gesture means more than just flowers.

"Until the day I die I'll get Valentine's flowers on Valentine's Day and that's just a testament of his love all over again," Golay said.

Last February, Shelly's husband Jim was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.

"My husband was dealing with brain cancer,” Golay said. “He had a Glioblastoma and it was an uphill climb. The diagnosis wasn't good."

Jim wanted to make Valentine's Day special for his wife, but he knew his days were limited. So, he came to this flower shop to setup a plan so that Shelly would always remember how much Jim loved her on Valentine's Day."

"Basically he had called and set it up before he passed and what it's going to be is just, every Valentine's Day just some of her favorite flowers the assorted roses,” Florist Jessie Row said. “ Mixed colors things like that, every day until she dies."

The flowers were delivered two days before Valentine’s Day.

And when shelly first saw the flowers were from Jim, she was speechless. So she contacted the flower shop about it, only to find out Jim's everlasting Valentine's Day plan.

This is one Valentine's Day that shelly says she will always remember.

"It was true love and you just don't find that very often,” Golay said. “You know, the fairy tale romance, the knight in shining armor, you just don't find that. And even though we didn't get the fairy tale ending, it was amazing."
