For the last eight years, Seth Stewart, 29, has made sure that local widows, single women and military spouses in Spokane, Washington, are not forgotten on Valentine's Day. He and his brothers deliver single red roses to homes of women whose husbands are deployed overseas.
Stewart and his brothers generally deliver between 400 and 500 free roses every year with the help of a delivery driving team. But this year they delivered 700 roses to women across the region. They hope to deliver many more in the future, after witnessing the emotional impact it has on recipients. According to Stewart, "Every single year we do this, there are always one or two women who break down sobbing because it means so much to them."
