Sometime in the past week, your loved one passed away.
Sometime in their life, he or she probably made the decision to be an organ donor.
Perhaps, sometime this past week, you were asked to make the final decision to allow their wishes to be carried out.
Sometime in the next few days, you will probably be remembering your loved one with a funeral or memorial service.
Sometime in the next year, you should receive a letter from us, telling you about Tricia and her new life as a mother without CF lungs.
We pray today and tomorrow, as we have been praying for months, that your pain and mourning might be softened by knowing that your loved one has helped to save and drastically improve at least one life. In fact, the first thing we did when we (myself and our parents) saw Tricia for the first time after the transplant surgery was to pray for you.
I doubt you will ever read this, and even if you do, you will have no way of knowing for sure that it is you I am speaking to. But, just for the incredibly slim chance you do...
