A Christmas Wish From Wife Who Died of Cancer Will Touch Your Heart
I've never heard anything as touching as the story of Brenda Schmitz. The mother and wife passed away in 2011 of ovarian cancer. Before she died, she wrote a letter to Iowa radio station, Star 102.5 Christmas Wish and asked a friend to send it in once her husband had found someone new.
Brenda wished for three things; a day or weekend of pampering for the new woman in her son's life, a 'magical trip' for the family, and a party for the doctors and nurses who treated her.
The station granted all three wishes and sent the family to Disney World.
Brenda also included a letter to be given to Jane, the new woman in her husband's life.
The story had me bawling. I haven't cried that hard in quite some time. I have no idea how those announcers got through that letter without breaking down, live on air. I would have.
What a beautiful story the family can carry with them forever.
