Wife's Dying Wish Touched These 'Elders' -- And Will Touch You Too

This past Christmas, Brenda Schmitz, a woman who died two years ago from ovarian cancer, was able to give her family one last gift with the help of a Des Moines radio station that received her incredibly thoughtful letter.

Now, in the latest episode of "Elders React" from The Fine Brothers, the elders watch and reflect on the heartbreaking first reading of the letter to Schmitz's husband.

In response, some of the elders recalled losses in their own lives and others had wise words to offer. All of them, we think, brought a new level of meaning to an already incredibly touching video. Click play above to watch and see for yourself.
