And now it's time for a Valentine's Day story that will put all the rest to shame.

Shelly Golay from Casper, Wyoming got a beautiful bouquet of flowers for Valentine's Day from her husband, Jim Golay. She was shocked to get them, as her husband had passed away last July from an inoperable brain tumor.

"I though the kids sent the flowers to begin with," she told NBC affiliate KCWY. So Shelly contacted the flower shop to get to the bottom of the Valentine's Day gift, and that's when she found out what her husband did before his death.

Jim had arranged to have flowers delivered to his wife every single Valentine's Day for the rest of her life. 

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

"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 assorted colored roses will be sent until the day she dies," said Jessie Row, who works at the local florist where Jim set up the arrangement. "She called the other day, we all almost started bawling. So it was really touching to hear the story and know that he had done that for her. It sees like something that only happens in the movies or that you hear about."

Even though Shelly and Jim's story was cut tragically short, Shelly said she still has the memories of a storybook romance with Jim.

"It was true love and you just don't find that very often, you know," she said. "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."
