Man Hears Letter From Wife Who Passed Away 2 Years Ago

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES, Iowa -

A family in Iowa receives a Christmas surprise they will never forget.

A man heard from his wife who passed away from ovarian cancer two years ago!

Brenda Schmidtz was diagnosed with stage-four ovarian cancer. One month before she died, she wrote a letter to her husband and gave it to a friend.

She asked the friend to send it to a local radio station in Des Moines when her husband was ready to move on.

"What a great husband and father he is," the letter said as it was read on Star 102.5-FM. "I know all of 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."

Brenda and her husband had four sons. The youngest was only 2 when his mother died.

Brenda realized this new woman would have some pretty big shoes to fill. So, she asked the radio station to grant three wishes:

  1. To send her family on a magical vacation;
  2. To give the new wife a day at the spa;
  3. And to treat the doctors and nurses at the hospital she received her treatment at.

"It's not surprising 'cause she's, the last year and a half, she's – so many signs that she's there," said her husband, David.

The radio station is granting all three wishes, including a Disney vacation for David, his new wife, and their combined six children!

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
