Steve in Idaho BS: donating organs after death (89* d) RE: BS: donating organs after death 28 Apr 04

I'm REAL glad Rita got the heart - one of my babies came from her a couple of years ago.

I'm not a donor. Never gave it a thought.

When Jan and I lost our son we donated his parts, some of them anyway, to others. He was a giving person and we felt that would have been his wish. It was a difficult decision to make coming on the heels of his death.

Of the five folks that got parts three died, one we don't know, and a 12 y/o little boy is off dialysis for the fist time since birth. So I reckon it was worth it.

And my opinion is we do not "save" lives. We all die at some point in time in this pysical world. We can prolong or enhance life by the things we do. Not meaning to fan any flames with this comment - just always bothered me that folks thought we could "save" life.

The only life I am interested in "saving" is the one that comes with Salvation through my Lord Jesus Christ.
