Mitchell and Ashley Whisenhunt were high school sweethearts, together until the end. When Mitchell fell ill with Marfan syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that affects the body’s connective tissue, Ashley dropped out of college to care for him.
During this time, the Texas couple welcomed their daughter Brynleigh.
In 2014, after four years of battling Marfan syndrome, Mitchell passed away. He was 26 years old.
After Mitchell died, Ashley was sorting through their house when she made an astonishing discovery. Though she was Mitchell’s caregiver from day one, she had no idea he’d been writing and hiding letters around their home.
It wasn’t long before the grieving wife found herself holding a stack of 30 letters and a familiar-looking spiral notebook she hadn’t seen in years.
But there was a catch: each of Mitchell’s letters had specific dates scribbled on the envelopes and Ashley nor Brynleigh could open them until it was time.
There was even a secret letter for the funeral director.
