Man wrote letters to wife, child before he died

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -A Texas woman whose husband recently died says she still feels close to him after discovering letters he wrote in his last days.

Mitchell Whisenhunt died Saturday after battling Marfan's Syndrome.

He would have turned 27 next week.

After his death, his wife discovered letters he wrote to her and notebooks of poetry.

She says the letters are made for special moments in her life, like an upcoming anniversary.

But, she says the most special letters are the ones he wrote to their 18-month-old daughter.

"Her 2nd, 3rd, 4th, birthday and on the 16th he wrote sweet 16 on the front of the envelope, all the way up to her 18th birthday," said Ashley Whisenhunt, Mitchell's wife.


She says she is going to respect Mitchell's wishes and let her daughter open the letters for each occasion.

Whisenhunt also left a letter to his community, thanking them for their support.
