KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A father and son recently went door-to-door to give an uplifting surprise to widows who otherwise may have spent Valentine's Day alone.

According to WDAF in Kansas City, the father/son duo spent the holiday handing out hundreds of single red roses to a women who had lost their husbands.

One of those women, Anne Lledurant, told the station the gesture assured her “[t]hat somebody really and truly cares about me. I’m a very, very lucky woman.”

Lledurant's husband died four years ago, WDAF reported.

The man, Jimmy Chouteau, along with his son looked to spread the message that Lledurant was not alone.

“Our heart is just to try to connect with them and let them know they’re not alone and that people care about them,” Chouteau told WDAF.

The Valentine's Day gesture isn't his first go-around with this message. WDAF reports Chouteau and his wife have a group called Widow Wednesday, where once a week he helps widows with handywork around the house.
