Linda's donation was on par with the rest of her life. She was a wonderful giving person that preferred to be behind the scenes working rather than leading for all to see. She had amazing crochet, knitting and cross stitch skills and her love was spread far and wide through her gifts. The blanket in the picture was a gift from her. I have always treasured it, but will even more so now that she is gone. I remember watching her crochet when I was a kid. Her fingers moved so fast you could hardly see them. She was an extremely funny person, you couldn't help but laugh when you were around her. She will be greatly missed.
On Thursday a Donate Life flag was flown at the hospital as a tribute to Linda's donation. We all learned a lot about the donation process through this experience and I urge you all to be informed and make your wishes known to your family. Research the laws in your state regarding organ and tissue donation.
We just returned from her funeral service last night. Our world kind of stopped turning for about a week and we are trying to get back into a normal routine now. You all have been busy while I've been gone! I have over 300 unread posts in my Google Reader account. So, if your looking for me I'll be siting in front of the computer trying to catch up!
Take care and thanks again for thinking of me and my family.
