Two whole years after Brenda Schmitz lost her battle to ovarian cancer, her husband David miraculously received a gift from her. It seems utterly impossible, but his late wife planned it out so perfectly for him. As she was dying, she knew she wanted to do this one thing for him once he was ready to have it. When you see what she gave him and the final letter she wrote to him, it’ll move you so much.
This is the letter Brenda wrote for the local radio station. She told her close friend not to mail it until David found love again with a new woman.
Never before have we heard of such wisdom and generosity. It must have taken Brenda so much strength to be able to write such a letter, knowing that she would die and her family would eventually move on.
This footage was taken at the station when David was first told about the letter. When you see how David reacts to receiving Brenda’s letter, your heart will break into a million pieces:
Brenda was a pure soul that fought hard until the very end and always kept her family in her thoughts. Please share this amazing story so other people know of her strength, courage, generosity and love.
Oh my. I have tears running down my cheeks. What an incredible woman to have done this.
