Before Brenda Schmitz died of ovarian cancer in 2011, she wrote a letter that was mailed to Des Moines radio station KSTZ. But that's just the beginning of what one newspaper described as "a loving Christmas request from beyond the grave.
Radio Station Star 102.5 in Des Moines granted the wish and here is their story.
In more than 20 years of granting Christmas Wishes, we’ve never received a wish quite like the one we received from Brenda Schmitz. Brenda wrote a letter to STAR 102.5′s Christmas Wish in August of 2011 – one month before she passed away from ovarian cancer at the age of 46. She asked her friend to send us her wish once her husband David had found someone else to love him and to help take care of their four boys.
