PHOENIX (KSAZ) - Any day can be tough for those who have lost their spouse and are living along, but especially on Valentine's Day.
Visiting Angels is doing their best to spread cheer to the elderly by delivering beautiful bouquets of flowers around the Valley.
"Today, we're surprising Kay with these beautiful flowers that we have to really just lift her spirits," Kate Dolance said. "She lives alone right now so we though it'd be wonderful to cheer her up today."
And surprised, Kay Yarnold was.
"I'm a widow, so you don't get a bouquet of flowers very often, so it's very nice," she said.
Kay says she couldn't have asked for a better Valentine's Day surprise. She says she's so grateful for Karen, a Visiting Angel, who's she's gotten close with over time.
Even though to some they're just carnations, to other like Kay, it's so much more.
"I'm gonna get cry baby, but you know, it's been wonderful when you live alone and you can't do a lot of things," Yarnold said. "She's my extra pair of hands, she's my hand, she's my angel."
