Brenda Schmitz died of ovarian cancer two years ago. But, before she passed, Schmitz left a letter with a friend along with instructions that the letter be delivered to a Des Moines area radio station if/when her husband decided to remarry.

Over the summer, her husband, David, announced that he'd proposed to his girlfriend, Jane. Brenda's friend sent her letter as requested and, now, you get your morning cry.

Schmitz's letter included three Christmas wishes for her husband and his new wife-to-be.

I can't even, right now. Cancel the rest of the day so you can bawl your eyes out watching David learn of the letter and Brenda's wishes. Happy holidays, everyone. [h/t Gawker]
