Young at Heart

Young at heart
My husband lived his life helping everyone

This is how people spoke of my husband, ‘young at heart’. He lived his life enjoying himself.

Only a couple of months before his death, our daughter sat him down and asked the question that he had always procrastinated over. ‘Yes’ he stated.  If anything should happen to him, he would like his organs donated.

When he suffered a massive stroke and did not regain consciousness, even though our family was in complete shock, it was an easy decision to make as we knew his wishes.

My husband lived his life helping everyone and he continued to do this by living on in others. This has given our family peace knowing that 8 people were given a new lease on life because of the donation he gave.
