Some dead guy is a way better Valentine than you are

It’s Valentine’s Day this week and that means you’re bound to disappoint that special someone in some way. Today’s reminder: A deceased man is more thoughtful than you are.

This particular anecdote of romance comes to us courtesy of Letters of Note, via Gawker:

thoughtful valentines day Some dead guy is a way better Valentine than you are

Transcribed by Hypervocal:

My Sweet husband, John, and I were married for 46 years. Each Valentine’s Day, he’d 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 gorgeaus 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’d 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.’”

That is seriously a beautiful thing. Less beautiful if it’s just viral marketing for The Walking Dead.
