A Deceased Wife’s Christmas Wish — Two Years in the Making

Brenda-Schmitz-Christmas-Wish-Her-Husband-New-WifeFlacks, get your Facebook posts ready, turn up the volume and grab plenty of tissue.

This Christmas wish comes to a husband — a widower in Des Moines, Iowa named David Schmitz — from his wife (Brenda, pictured to the left) who died two years ago of ovarian cancer. Sounds strange, I know, but this story and 14-minute video is one of the most gut-wrenching, tear-inducing and Christmas-good-feeling moments you will spend this year.

Brenda wrote a letter to her best friend with directions to carry out once her husband found someone to care for their four children.

He did, she did and what is left is magic only found during the Christmas holidays.

Please, listen to Brenda Schmitz’s posthumous Christmas wish for her husband now that he has found the strength to move on, under his wife’s blessing. Amazing.
