My special valentine, although I have never met you, you mean as much to me as any member of my family.
You didn't give me candy or a card or paper hearts. You gave me something much more valuable, a gift more precious than gold, something you treasured for 37 years. I will continue to cherish and nurture this gift for as long as God permits. My life depends on it.
No words can express how thankful my family and I are for you sharing this most precious valentine.
Your daughter's untimely passing made it possible for me and others to have the gift of life. May your pain and suffering at your loss ease with the knowledge that her legacy lives on inside me and will never be forgotten. Thank you for being an organ and tissue donor.
William J. Maxey, Langley
