Default Most Stunningly Tragic Christmas Wish Ever

Des Moines radio station, KSTZ “Star” 102.5 FM has run a "Christmas Wish" program for over 20 years, but nothing could have prepared them for Brenda Schmitz's request.

The wife and mom of four lost her battle with ovarian cancer two years ago, at the age of 46.

“About a week and half ago we got [her] letter in the mail,” station brand manager Scott Allen told the Des Moines Register. “We’ve been doing the Christmas Wish program for 20-plus years. We’ve never received a wish like this, ever.”

Brenda wanted the station to do something wonderful for her husband, David, and their children, after she was gone.

And so, David was asked to come into the station to have a wish granted, but was told nothing further. As the stunned dad attempted to hold back his tears, host Colleen Kelly started to read his wife's first letter.

Can't see the vid, but if this is the one where the wife wanted the wish held until her husband met someone and moved on, wow, it's good

Dont know why you can't see it unless you are on one of those iThingies. I edited it to include the original Huff Post link though. It is the dead wife's wish though.
