“Friends and fans of the late George Jones are welcome to celebrate his legacy as Nancy will plant two dogwood trees at the ‘He Stopped Loving Her Today’ monument,” reads a statement on the website.

“This day is going to be bittersweet,” Nancy Jones said. “I know how much people loved George, and the love has continued even a year later.
