A letter arrived the other day
From the parents of my donor
The pain in its penning twice mentioned.
Their mourning continues
At the loss of their son
So also their love remains strong.
With mortal existence cut short
A vital part of him lives on
His name was Shane.
Even in their pain his parents wish my happiness
A gift doubled in their charity
Such sacrifice inexpressible
My duty to them, to him
In each act of kindness I commit
May I shorten their mourning
Pain replaced by comfort
In time that they will again see
The beauty of the trees
The majesty of the clouds
And feel joy in the light of a new day.
Beautifully said. I agree! Hope you are doing well. Dr. Dana feels I should wait until after heart biopsy on the 23rd before starting valcade. So I will wait. Let me know what your doctor has said. See you and Barbie next week at the support group party. It should be lots of fun. I did find more out about my donor too. Her name is Jazmin, 18 years old. She was a twin and her twin sister Jamne died two years ago from a drug overdose. Her mom is mourning two daughters who have died within two years. She does want to have contact with me but at this time the pain is too much. I understand and will respect her wishes. I ask God to bless them each day. I hope to honor Jazmin on my blog when the time is right. I have pictures of her and she is a beautiful child. What a gift those parents gave the night they made the decision to donate her body. I will always be grateful. I know you understand what I'm feeling. See you next week. Rest and relax. Love Debbie
That was beautiful Kevin. We all love Shane and I will pray for his parents.
