Still has me crying, a beautiful tribute to her husband, new wife, and family.  Building a life again isn't easy it takes faith, persiverance, and most of all love, knowing that your sweet loved ones had not only thought of how lost you would be without them but also how much they wanted you to love again and that they would embrase that love is wonderful!

Wow, that video had me crying. As caring as this departed wife seemed in her letter, I doubt she'd say anything in her private message to the new wife that would not be welcome to read. Building a second family isn't easy and to know you have the blessing of the first wife (who will always be on a pedestal) could help you not walk in her shadow....

Mac  watched this yesterday and thought how nice for the family she left behind to have this...this morning  just briefly  I imagined that I was the new woman in the picture  and realized I would not want  to get a letter from his departed wife if I were to be the one marrying him.  No way to know the contents firstoff  and  secondly  I would want to make my own assessment and judgment  of him, us and our future  without someone giving her opinion from the grave or giving me  advice.  A thank you would be ok in a letter she wrote to someone else  but directly to me...no I would not want that.  Just a bit too controlling and if advice were in it...I would always  be thinking of what she said.  No.  I think to her husband and children  it is beautiful  but not to the wife to be...who deserves to begin  fresh and build from there with her new family.   Just my personal opinion.   thanks for posting  this interesting story    lj
