Members lovedones Posted January 30, 2010 Members Report Share Posted January 30, 2010 Come May it will be 12 yrs that my husband is gone. I can't believe it is that long already. I was talking to my sons about it the other day. They asked me how I keep myself together like I did. They were 12 & 16 when their dad died. I told them because I had them and they needed me. I had to keep going and comfort them, let them know that we would get through it together. They wanted to know if I ever wondered if anything good would come out of dad dying. I had to think for alittle. Then I told them about 2 things I know that came good out of it. About 4 months after he passed away I received a letter from someone telling me that thanks to our gift of organ donor, 2 children were given help. My husband passed awy due to a massive heart attack. Drs couldn't use his organs. But they could use his soft muscle and skin for graphing. I recieved a card from a family stating that they had a bad house fire and thanks to the donation their young sons were able to have the burn injuries treated. There was no names in the card. I know due to the laws it is done like this. But the parents needed to send us a card thanking us and hoping some how this would give us some comfort.I thought this was so nice. It did give me comfort and now also gives comfort to my sons. I really wish more people would be organ donors. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
