In 1988 my wife vanida was admitted to thonburi hospital in bangkok thailand with terminal cancer and we discussed her wishes for her funeral. She was more concerned about who was going to take care of me after she was gone. We cried and the next day she passed away from cancer.
One of the head nurses name was Valida, one letter difference from my wifes name. She was very supportive during the time I stayed by my wifes bedside before she passed away. After the funeral I went back to the hospital to pay the final bill and to thank all the doctors and nurses for being so nice to me and my wife and Valida gave me her name and address.
We wrote for about 3 months and I later asked her to marry me. I feel that my first wifes spirit brought her to me to take care of me and we have been married for 17 years since her death.
It was a happy ending to a very sad story.
