My hero - Turk (Alan)

He is my HERO.

My husband Turk (Alan), put his life before others as he rushed to help two small kids from a car that had crashed into a guard rail.

He lifted the kids aged five and six from the car, and was assisting the driver when another car hit him. Turk was thrown in the air and he died at the scene.

Luckily, a doctor turned up and he was on life support for two days.

He always joked about parts of him not being good enough for transplantation. There are now many people leading a better life because of him. Someone now has a new heart and two others have his kidneys.

He also gave bone tissue. He had a blind eye, but someone now can see out of it.

He is my HERO.
