Organ Donors Leave Behind Their Precious Gifts of Life

TO REMEMBER ME
At a certain moment a doctor will determine that my brain has ceased to function and that, for all intents and purposes, my life has stopped.
When that happens, do not attempt to instill artificial life into my body by the use of a machine. And don’t call this my “deathbed.” Call it my “bed of life,” and let my body be taken from it to help others lead fuller lives.
Give my sight to a man who has never seen a sunrise, a baby’s face or love in the eyes of a woman.
Give* my heart to a person whose own heart has caused nothing hut endless days of pain.
Give my blood to the teen-ager who has been pulled from the wreckage of his car, so that he

might live to see his grandchildren play.
Give my kidneys to one who depends on a machine to exist from week to week.
Take my hones, every muscle, every fiber and nerve in my body and find a way to make a crippled child walk.
Explore every corner of my brain. Take my cells, if necessary, and let them glow so that someday a speechless boy will shout at the crack of a bat and a deaf girl will hear the sound of rain against her windows.
Burn what is left of me and scatter the ashes to the winds to help the flowers grow.
If you must bury something, let it hi* my faults, my weaknesses and all my prejudice against my fellow man.
DEAR ABBY: Today when I went to the grocery store, I saw a homeless family with a small child and a sign that read: “Homeless. Will Work for Food or Pampers.’’ This just broke my heart. When I came out, the*y were gone.
But it made me think of all the* free samples and coupons I get in my mail every month. Don’t get me wrong, I love junk mail. So I decided to save the samples of shampoo, diapers, hath soap and other things in the original wrappers to donate te> three* of our local charities. They might help a family take a shower, wash clothes, or provide* clean diapers for the little* ones. (Not to me*n-tirm what extra coupons mean to an underprivileged family. It could mean milk or bread that week. It isn’t much, hut to someone with nothing it’s a lot.)
Maybe if more* people would take* a few seconds to dei this, it cemld ease someone’s suffering and give them a great feeding. I know it did me* when I made my decision.
I hopi* you print this, hut please don’t use my name — I live* in a small town.
