In more than 20 years of granting Christmas Wishes, we’ve never received a wish quite like the one we received from Brenda Schmitz. Brenda wrote a letter to STAR 102.5′s Christmas Wish in August of 2011 – one month before she passed away from ovarian cancer at the age of 46. She asked her friend to send us her wish once her husband David had found someone else to love him and to help take care of their four boys.
Watch the video of Brenda’s wish here:
