Randy Tenney sent his wife flowers and a poem every year on Valentine's Day. He passed away in December, but he had one last surprise for his wife of 45 years this year.
One last bouquet of flowers. One last poem.
"Roses are red, Violets are blue, yelling from Heaven that I will always love you. With love from your eternal Valentine, R.T.”
The poem came with a bouquet of yellow roses crowned with a single red rose.
“They were high school sweethearts,” the couple’s son Jordan said. “He doted on her every day.
Randy Tenney, 65, passed away last December after a months-long battle with glioblastoma, a rare form of brain cancer. Knowing he likely wouldn’t make it to Valentine’s Day, he made sure his wife Debbie would get the flowers and poem he gave her every single year since they got married in 1974.
Tenney arranged the delivery “straight from heaven” months in advance through a family friend who owned a flower shop.
Randy is survived by his wife, eight children, 33 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
