CASPER, Wyoming -- Shelly Golay received flowers from her husband this Valentine's Day and that wouldn't seem so unusual, except he'd gone to the afterlife a few months prior.

Before passing away from an inoperable brain tumor, Jim wanted to make sure his wife would always get a special delivery from him on Feburary 14.

Shelly says,  "He's such an amazing man and he is just can love beyond boundaries, there is no boundaries with him. Even in death, he's just amazing."

When she first received the flowers from him, she thought it was something her kids had arranged.

Jessie Row, a florist, says, "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, mixed colors things like that, every day until she dies."

Shelly called the store to find out Jim's plan to have her get her favorite flowers every Valentine's Day.

Row says, "She called the other day. We all started almost balling, so 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."

Shelly adds, "It was true love and you just don't find that very often, 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."
