I came across this lovely article online at the weekend and thought I would share it with you. It's called 'Love Never Ends'.
My sweet husband John and I were married for 46 years. Each Valentine's Day he would send me the most beautiful flowers containing a note with five simple words: 'My love for you grows.' Four children, 46 bouquets and a lifetime of love were his legacy to me when he passed away two years ago.
On my first Valentine's Day alone, 10 months after I lost him, I was shocked to receive a gorgeous bouquet addressed to me... from John. Angry and heartbroken, I called the florist to say there had been a mistake. The florist replied, 'No ma'am, it's not a mistake. Before he passed away your husband prepaid for many years and asked us to guarantee that you would continue getting bouquets every Valentine's Day.'
With my heart in my throat, I hung up the phone and read the attached card. It said, 'My love for you is eternal.'
