A second chance… for someone else

We got a letter today for the transplant team telling us that a small flock of phoenixes rose from the ashes of our misfortune.  A 34 yr old lady who had been waiting for 4 yrs has a kidney, as has a 54 yrs who had been on dialysis for 6 yrs.  Her liver is helping a 64 yrs old man who is married with a family.  A 50 yr married man has her lungs and her heart vales, corneas and skin will be able to help others too get over their traumas.

For us, it is important that we have enriched a few other lives, set some people free of fear and suffering.
