End-of-Life Holiday Love Story (Video 1:59)
Dying from ovarian cancer a few years ago, Brenda Schmitz had a lot on her mind. A wife and mother of four young boys, she envisioned leaving her family and a few others something very special that would enhance their lives and memories of her love for them in a most surprising manner. Her idea focused on a letter including her final wishes, a letter that was not like any most people normally write or receive. Brenda’s written expressions were to be delivered after she died. Specific instructions indicated the letter could not be sent until something very special took place. Did I mention the letter was sent to a radio station?
Happy holidays to you all. Experience the real meaning of the season in “I Love You Whoever You Are,” Brenda’s heartwarming story about her unique end-of-life wishes.
