On episode 99 we kick off 2019 talking about ways you can control your end of life decisions. What’s a will and what’s a living will? Should I declare that I’m an organ, eye and tissue donor in a will? Our guest, estate planning attorney, Paul Rabalais of Rabalais Estate Planning, LLC, has the answers. Sally gives us tips for shifting to a new perspective. We honor hero, Alan Puissegur, and answer a listener’s question right here on The Gifted Life Podcast. #podcast #donatelife

Garrett Patrick Thompson will be honored with a Floragraph. Sponsored by Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency (LOPA.) Garrett Patrick Thompson was born on October 4, 2000. As he grew, his sparkling blue eyes, darling dimples and sweet smile brought joy to everyone he met and helped him charm his way out of any mischief he may have found himself in. Garrett was always on the go. He loved to race his Hot Wheels cars and watch NASCAR. Garrett also loved to play ball and started playing baseball as soon as he was old enough. In July of 2007, Garrett was playing with his younger brother, Avery. Garrett fell and had an injury that would lead to stroke-like symptoms. He did not recover from his injuries. Hoping to have something good come out of this devastating loss, Garrett’s family fully embraced the life-giving opportunity of organ donation. Garrett saved four young lives by donating his heart, kidneys and liver. Today his family works to share the importance of donation.
