Let me start off with a big thanks to John...this magazine clip has been making the rounds online. I don't know from which magazine. I don't even know if it's legit...but it’s a story from a 68-year-old Houston, TX woman named Sue Johnston. She was married to husband John for 46 years, and every Valentine's Day, he’d send her a bouquet of flowers. After 46 years together, he died.
But the next Valentine’s Day, Sue STILL got a bouquet from John. It made her angry and upset, so she called the florist to tell them about the mistake. But they told her, ‘Before he passed away, your husband prepaid for many years.’ He asked them to keep sending her bouquets every Valentine’s Day. And when Sue looked at the card on the flowers, it said, ‘My love for you is eternal.’
So for those of us who thought death was the escape from this Hallmark holiday...thanks John. Thanks a million.
