Devoted Husband Plants Thousands of Trees to Honor Late Wife. 17 Yrs Later, Aerial Photo finds Secret
When it comes to marriage, everyone hopes to have the strong marriage that lasts. The one that “makes it” to 50, 60 and 70 years together. Waking up every morning to the love of your life, and falling more in love today than you were the day before.
For 33 years, Winston Howes had the pleasure of waking every morning to his wife, Janet. And then sadly in 1995, he started waking up alone.
That year Janet was taken from Howes by heart failure. Although she was no longer physically here, she would always have his heart.
After her passing, Howes had an idea for a way to honor and remember her.
Remember all of those trees that Howes sought out after his wife died? Well, he planted them in a field, only he didn’t fill the entire field.
Right in the middle, he left a heart-shaped hole. THAT is where he placed the seat from which he could remember and mourn.
The balloonist who discovered this hidden heart, Andy Collett, told that “this was the most amazing sight I have ever seen from the sky. You can just imagine the love story.”
