Late Wife Writes Husband Wish-Filled Letter, Leaves Internet in Tears

by at . Comments

This is pretty much as moving as it gets.

Earlier this month, KSTZ in Des Moines received a letter written by Brenda Schmitz, a mother of four and the late wife of a man named David. She passed away two years ago from ovarian cancer.

Prior to her death, however, Brenda instructed a friend to send her message to the radio station - specifically during its "Christmas Wish" program - after David found someone else with whom to share his life.

“I have a wish for David and the boys and the woman and her family if she has kids also,” Brenda writes in the letter, which is read aloud in the following footage. “I want them to know I love them very much and they always feel safe in a world of pain."

Brenda goes on to outline a trio of wishes for David and his new fiancee, all of which were actually granted by local sponsors.

As you might expect, David grows incredibly emotional during the surprise and you will, too. Watch now:

So you're saying he's not allowed to find someone who makes him happy just because the person who made him happier is gone? Maybe you shouldn't judge him for wanting to not be sad.

This would be more moving if he hadn't of moved on. Really, people? He loved her so much that he couldn't live without her, so he found someone else. People are so disposable.

That was my first thought too. Not impressed with him at all.
