Grieving Woman Checks Email After Husband's Funeral, Faints After Seeing Message

A woman opened her email after her husband's funeral and was shocked by one of the messages she read. 

A husband and wife from Minneapolis planned to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary at the same hotel in Florida where they had spent their honeymoon. They had to take separate flights because of scheduling conflicts, so the husband left the day before his wife. Once he got there, he emailed his wife to tell her that he was there, waiting for her to arrive. 

But there was a typo in the email address and he sent the email to another woman -- a widow who’d just buried her late husband.

When the woman checked her email after her husband’s funeral, she found the shocking note and fainted.

I know you’re surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send emails to your loved ones. I’ve just arrived and have been checked in. 

I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then. Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.

P.S. Sure is hot down here!!!!!

The amusing story quickly went viral after it was shared online.

“So funny until you think about the utter shock she had,” one reader wrote on Shared’s Facebook page.

“To think that you received a letter from your late husband and he's in hell and he is expecting you the very next day. I would have past out too,” another added.
