In February 2011 Brenda Schmitz was diagnosed with stage IV ovarian cancer and given only months to live. She passed away in September of that year. Before she passed away she wrote a letter to her husband that she gave to her friend. She told her friend that she wasn't allowed to give the letter to her husband, until he had moved on and found someone else to spend his life with. Her friend then gave the letter to the Star 102.5 radio station, as instructed, with a request for them to grant her family a wish. If this doesn't move you, you have no soul. Seriously, there aren't enough tears for this.
