A letter dated August 3, 2011 was recently sent to a radio station.
The letter was from Schmitz, written one month before she died of ovarian cancer.
She asked a friend to wait until her husband, David, had found a new love to marry before delivering the letter.
The first wish was for David’s new partner, whomever that might be.
Her second wish was for her family.
Her final wish was for the cancer nurses and doctors in her unit at Mercy Medical Center.
All of her wishes were fulfilled.
