One Iowa man and his family have received a very special Christmas surprise: a letter from his late wife. Before she died of ovarian cancer two years ago, David Schmitz's wife Brenda had penned a letter intended for a local radio station's program that grants Christmas wishes. She had asked a friend to send the letter to the station once her husband had found a new love, as she hoped he would. This year, after David got engaged to a new love, Jane, the friend did -- and now her wishes are being fulfilled. "First, for David’s new life-long partner, a day or better yet, a weekend, of pampering in all aspects of her life," Brenda's letter stipulated. The other wishes: For a party for the hospital staff that cared for her during her battle with cancer, and for a family celebration for Dave's and Jane's new family. The station granted all three wishes, and Jane said she was "speechless" at the generosity.
