A Son Leaves a Trail of Memories
It is April, Spring is in the air. The sun is warm and bright, the air is filled with sweet sound of laughter, the voices of a father and his children as they run and play in the sunshine.
With the assistance of LOPA we were given the information we needed to make the decision of organ donation. Within hours of his death, Lee's donation saved the life of Mike, a 57 year old father, and Tracey, a 34 year old lady, and gave sight to two others. One year later, our family and the recipient families have met and our memories of Lee continue to grow. Mike, Tracey and their families are now a part of our extended family. Their lives and ours are forever changed because of Lee's act of donation.
We were devastated by the loss of my son, and the children's father. We wanted something good to come from this tragedy and have found great comfort in knowing many lives were saved, improved or extended by Lee's organ, tissue and bone donation. My son's trail of memories continues through Mike, Tracey and the nameless others. Thank you to LOPA for helping my son and our family give the gift of life.
