Silver Lining

Last night I sat in the familiar (to me) little room just outside of the ER with a wife who just lost her husband in an unexpected death.

As she was asked about organ donation, she admitted he had not signed anything, but yes, she wanted anything to help others by agreeing to it for him.

I thanked her.

He was only 48. How old are you? Have you considered becoming an organ donor? I hope so. Every day people in this country die because there is a shortage of available life-saving organs only because so many never sign up to be donors.

Info on organ donation is on the right of this page. Why put it off? And why make your loved one make that call? Just do it.
