In between the time that Dad was hurt and died, we made the decision to donate whatever organs could be salvaged. This was an easy decision, as Dad had previously said that he’d donate whatever he could, because he wouldn’t be needing them. (ha ha!)
Due to some circumstances as his age and such, they weren’t able to use Dad’s larger organs; but planned to take tissue and eyes.
Well, Mom recently got a nice letter from the transplant company. Here is a snip of the good stuff:
We encourage all of you who would also chose to donate your organs and/or tissue to make that fact known to your family.
Just say ‘Hey – this may be awkward, but my friend Jonco’s organs helped out multiple people after he died.. and I’d like to do that too – so if anything were to happen to me, I want you to know that now.’
