    WY - Wyoming Woman Stunned by Gift From Husband Who Died Last Year

    Wyoming Woman Stunned by Gift From Husband Who Died Last Year
    Shelly and Jim Golay


    A Wyoming woman who lost her husband of 28 years to brain cancer last year was shocked to receive a special gift from him this Valentine's Day. Shelly and Jim Golay of Casper, Wyoming, met at church in 1984. They had a "fairy tale romance" and even went to Disneyland in California for their honeymoon, Shelly Golay told ABC News today. Her husband was "very much a family man," Golay, 52, said, adding that they have two children, now 27 and 25. The family has owned Rocky Mountain Industrial Supply, an industrial and safety distribution company, since 2007.

    "Jim was just an amazing man. Everybody that ever met him loved him. He was always just my rock. And the whole family's rock. And he just had this unwavering faith that was just inspiring. Always had a positive attitude," Golay added.

    Jim was diagnosed with brain cancer on Easter 2012.

    "Had a strength that was just contagious. He was tough as nails," Golay said. "When he went through his chemo, he didn't look like a chemo patient, didn't act like a chemo patient."

    In February 2014, they learned the cancer was inoperable. Jim was given four months to live and he died in June 2014 at age 53.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    We read of so many twisted horrible criminals on these threads, it is so wonderful to read about truly kind, loving people like this man. It restores a bit of faith in human nature.

    RIP Jim.

    These type of stories really re-affirm my faith in people and genuine love. It's hard to beat the real love of a woman or man.
