I have to say thank you for letting me experience the gift of life in a way that made Darrell's donation even more meaningful.  This year is a new chapter in my life... I have found out that I am able to breath and live through my grief in a more adequate way.  I was able to volunteer my time and effort to a great cause... this has shown my children exactly what it meant for their father to share something he had to offer to become a gift for someone else.


Again, I have to say thank you for making Saturday a grand experience for myself and my children... who each in their own way have express their appreciation for their eyes being opened to the positive aspect of their father's death.  They were all under the impression that this walk was going to be boring and sad... but to their surprise found it to be a wonderful experience... they are each going to make it an annual celebration!


So, from the bottom of my heart... Thank You!!!

Love, Lydia
