IndyCar Driver Remembered In Heart-Touching Letter From His Wife
It was just a week ago that 33 year old Dan Wheldon, a two-time Indianapolis 500 winner, died in IndyCar’s season finale at Las Vegas. He was remembered Saturday not only as a champion but as a loving husband, father, loyal friend and beloved son.
Of all the unforgettable moments from Wheldon’s memorial service the heart-wrenching letter from his wife, Susie cut deepest. The attendees were moved to tears by a loving wife's letter to her husband.
“My sweet Dan, my whole body is aching, down to the deepest part of my soul,” Susie wrote in a letter read by family friend Michael Johnson. “I keep thinking this is a bad dream.”
Susie wrote about how scared she is that she’s going to forget things, how everything is moving so quickly and that she has to remember to breathe.
“My heart is scattered in a million pieces,” she wrote. “I just want to wake up and hear your reassuring voice.”
Wheldon left behind two young sons, 2-year-old Sebastian and 7-month-old Oliver.
