He Lost His Wife To Cancer. 2 Years Later, He Finds A Secret About Her That Shook Him To Tears



 Two years after Brenda Schmitz lost her battle with ovarian cancer, her husband David received a stunning surprise. His wife had written a special letter for him, and inside, it detailed a Christmas wish that she planned for her family.
The wish was finally about to come true.
 Brenda Schmitz was diagnosed with ovarian cancer back in 2011. She was a wonderful wife and mother of four boys. She always went above and beyond for her family, and towards the end of her life, she decided to plan a surprise for her husband.
It was meant to be given to him when the time was right.
 Brenda wrote a letter to David that she only told a close friend she could trust. Her friend acknowledged Brenda’s intent and kept the surprise from David until the time was write.
It was meant to be given to David when he had found a new woman to love.
 Brenda was a huge fan of the local radio station’s “Christmas Wish” segment that occurred every year. To surprise David with this letter, she asked the radio station to participate. The station invited David down to the radio station as part of the segment, and there, they read the touching letter to him.
 The letter is deeply touching and moving. It talks about a woman’s unconditional love for her family. She begins the letter with a background story about herself:
“Hello my name is Brenda Schmitz. When you are in receipt of this letter I will have already lost my battle to ovarian cancer. I am writing this letter to have sent to you by a dear friend who has instructions to do so when it was the time. I had to type this because I can barely write anymore because of my shakiness I told her that once my loving husband David had moved on in his life and met some to share his life with again to mail this to all of you at the station….My reason for writing is this. I have a wish. I have a wish for David, the boys, and the woman and her family if she has kids also. I want them to know I love them very much,”
Brenda knew that this letter would be the perfect gift for her family, even when she had already passed away.
 The letter then goes on to share the Christmas wishes that she hoped her loved ones would have come true. She begins to thank David for finding someone new to love. She knew this woman would be perfect for raising her four sons.
“First, for David’s new lifelong partner. A day or better yet a weekend of pampering in all aspects of her life. Hair, makeup, body massage, clothes, shopping, spa or weekend getaway. Whatever. She deserves it. Being a step-mother to all of those boys and especially giving lil’ Max a “mothers love” that only she can give…. Thank you – I love you – whoever you are.”
David’s new wife, Jayne, was honored to be thought of by Brenda. Brenda was touched by the fact that Jayne said “I love you,” and she will provide little Max with the love of two mothers, both her and Brenda’s!
 Next, Brenda wished her family would go on a magical trip. There’s only one place where this could happen…
 Finally, Brenda wished for the doctors and nurses that cared and supported her during her battle. She asked them to be thanked.
“A night full of drinks, food and fun for all they do everyday for the cancer patients they encounter.”
 David was grateful that the radio station shared Brenda’s letter with the entire community. He was surprised and shocked by the letter. He never knew about it for two whole years, and the letter perfectly represented the incredible woman he had married and loved.
The radio station and a few sponsors ensured that all of Brenda’s wishes came true!
Here is Brenda’s letter that the radio station read to David:
Hello my name is Brenda Schmitz. When you are in receipt of this letter I will have already lost my battle to ovarian cancer. I am writing this letter to have sent to you by a dear friend who has instructions to do so when it was the time. I had to type this because I can barely write anymore because of my shakiness. I told her that once my loving husband David had moved on in his life and met someone to share his life with again to mail this letter to all of you at the station.
I always enjoyed thru the years the Christmas wish you all put on. It is a tremendous and thoughtful deal you do for people that truly exemplifies what Christmas is all about. As I was thinking about my last months on earth I told David my wishes after I was gone that I believe he followed thru with the attitude and courage I know he possesses. What a great husband and father he is. I know all this is extremely hard on him. He is the one making the best decisions from here on out for my family and ultimately finding a caring, compassionate loving woman in time to help raise the boys. She must be quite a lady and I wish I could have met to take on the task of raising a larger extended family with unwavering love and devotion and a huge heart. I also gave my friend some things to do and this letter sent to you is 1 of them when the time presented itself.
We have 4 boys, Carter, Josh, Justin and my lil’ Max. Max is the youngest at 2 years old. I was diagnosed right after his 1st birthday. No child as young as Max should lose his mother and it brings tears to my eyes now thinking of it. God I will miss seeing him and the boys grow up to be fine men. I have relayed to David to try and not let him forget me. He is such a bright, intelligent beautiful boy. I will miss all my boys. My favorite has always been the one standing in front of me.
My reason for writing is this. I have a wish. I have a wish for David, the boys, and the woman and her family if she has kids also. I want them to know I love them very much and they always feel safe in a world of pain. I was hoping that one small act you all could do for me can change and help their lives forever and they know I am with them always.
First, for David’s new lifelong partner. A day or better yet a weekend of pampering in all aspects of her life. Hair, makeup, body massage, clothes, shopping, spa or weekend getaway. Whatever. She deserves It. Being a step-mother to all those boys and especially giving lil’ Max a “mothers love” that only she can give. Make her smile and know her efforts are truly appreciated from me. Perserverance will prevail. Thank you- I love you- whoever you are. Talk to me- you are heard. For the family a magical trip somewhere where they all can enjoy their company and companionship as a family and create those memories that will be with them forever. Finally the cancer doctors at Mercy Hospital and nurses of 8 south. Dr. Carlson, Dr. Turner, Deb Schnoor, Marie Rudolf. A night out full of drinks, food and fun for all they do everyday for the cancer patients they encounter.
May God Bless and keep all of you safe there. Thanks for this. When you wish upon a star…. Brenda
Brenda left behind far more hope and love than her family ever imagined. The entire family knows that Brenda is always with them, watching over them from above. Their youngest son has a rainbow in his room to remind him that Mom is always by his side.
