Today, April 30th, is the day when we HONOR and CELEBRATE our donor heroes who have given the gift of life through organ, tissue and eye donations. Together we “plant” Forget-Me-Not flowers to symbolize that these heroes and their gifts will NEVER be forgotten.
I know I will never ever forget the gift of life that my donor, BENNY KEITH WARD, gave to me. Many times, each and every day, I pray for Benny Keith and his family. I also pray for the families of ALL donors. I have been BLESSED to have met a number of donor families …….. their loved ones are true heroes.
(Actually, with the quarantine in place, my flowers are going to be planted a little late this year.)
