A woman asked a radio station to grant her three wishes.


As reported by Shared, before Brenda Schmitz died in 2011, she wrote letters and asked a friend to send it to Star 102.5 radio station when her husband David Schmitz finds a new partner. Brenda, a mother of four boys, died from ovarian cancer at the age of 46.

Jayne Abraham, David’s new fiancee, said the letter had given her reassurance. She was crying when David told her about it.

The letter was lighthearted. Jayne, herself a mother of two, said she was extremely touched.


“He said, well, you can read it when we get home tonight. I read the letter and it touched my heart in so many different ways. It filled the package for me with any doubt that I might have had,” she recalled.

David first heard about the letter when the station read it to him the day before it went out on air.

“They said they had received a letter that someone wanted to grant me a wish. I asked who is it from and they said it's so personal that we can't tell you over the phone. You need to come in here,” he said.


When David came to the radio station, he was "in shock" while the host read his late wife's letter.

Brenda had written: 'When you are in receipt of this letter, I will have already lost my battle to ovarian cancer. I told my friend once my loving husband David had moved on in his life and had met someone to share his life with again, to mail this letter to all of you at the station.'


Brenda’s first wish was for Jayne to be treated to a spa day. The second wish was that her family be taken on a magical trip and her final wish was to have party organized for the nurses and doctors who took care of her in the cancer unit at Mercy Medical Center.

With the help of sponsors, the radio station was able to grant all three of Brenda’s wishes.

Brenda was an incredible woman who cares deeply for her loved ones even while she was dying.
