I am writing to express my sincere, heartfelt gratitude to you and members of your family for my gift of sight. I know your decision of organ donation was made at the most difficult time of your lives. As a result of your love and generosity I received a cornea tissue transplant a few weeks ago.
I cannot adequately express the emotions of thankfulness I feel. A few days after surgery my vision was brighter and clearer without distortion I experienced for years. Thank you for this living gift. I am a 69 year old Registered Nurse. Retired and residing in Alabama. My husband and I will celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary in a few months. We have 3 children and 7 grandchildren (ages 18 yrs – 2yrs). Two of our children are serving in Christian Ministry positions.
We are a close family and often get together for Sunday dinners and fishing trips to our camphouse on the river. I am most grateful that in the moment of your difficult situation, God’s grace was extended to me through your precious loved one. God bless and comfort you is my prayer. I welcome correspondence or personal contact but at the same time I have the deepest respect for your privacy in your time of grief.
I hope you feel a sense of continuing life and love through your gift of sight for which I will be FOREVER GRATEFUL.
