Christine Delay on a Valentine's Gift: "Tom was serving in the Texas legislature in Austin, and I was staying home to run the business while they were in session. He called me while I was all alone feeling sorry for myself on Valentine’s Day and told me to look out the bedroom window. When I pulled back the curtain, there was a beautiful diamond-drop necklace. I was completely surprised. It’s still my favorite.”
