Welcome – 6

“This has to be the most beautiful
The most peaceful place I’ve ever been to
It’s nothing like I’ve ever seen before
When I think of how far I’ve come,
I can’t believe it…and yet I see it
In them I see family
I see the way we used to be.”

Phil Collins – “Welcome”

In my mind …… as simple as my mind is …… each time I hear the verse above I see one single place. In this place I have wept, I have been humbled, I have reflected, I have prayed for others and given thanks. My friends will know this place as the “Legacy Garden” where we pay tribute, where we honor our organ donors publicly once a year at Lifebanc’s “Gift of Life, Walk and Run”.

The beauty of this garden is breathtaking ….. it is a solemn place to many!

I relive how my life has evolved and think of all the others that are honored in this garden and truly how much they gave.

In a word ….. OVERWHELMED!!

A small part of the garden is seen below ……
