 LIFEGIFT


When our daughter, Fay,
joined the Lord  
on February 27, 2001,
her Dad, her Brother Phyl,and I
made a decision that
 no parent or brother
should ever have to make.

We offered her for
organ and tissue donation.

We made the decision based
on Fay's own sweet, loving
and caring personality and
the ways she looked at things.
 She always enjoyed giving
and sharing, loved to help others
 who got hurt, and she gave
more than material things.  

I knew too, that was precisely
what she would want.
The exquisite precious gift and the decision to donate is an ultimate act of charity and caring.
The gift is the highest form of giving, giving the gift of Life to another, a stranger. It is gracious, kind, precious, and generous gift. There is no other like it.
Fay gave of  herself  not to see a smile
on someone's face  or even for a
Thank you ...  she just gave.

   She gave others a chance for
a new or better life.  She prevented
others from knowing the tremendous  
pain of losing someone they love .  
And she left us the  comfort of knowing
that part of her  lives on.

Her priceless gift came with
an enormous pain for us,
the kind of pain that reaches down
to your very soul.  And it does not
remove the pain of grief.  Nothing can
do that.   

    But our grief came positive proof
that something of value came from
our daughter's final gifts -
saving another human being's life.
