This weekend marks my 3-year transplant anniversary. I wanted to post this weekend giving gratitude and thanksgiving to the Lord first of all for sparing my life when I was at the point of death, and secondly to thank my donor family for honoring their sons wishes to be an organ donor should he die. I was very fortunate to meet my donor family 2 years ago and yesterday I had the privilege to lay flowers at his grave. It is hard for friends and family to fully understand the deep gratitude you have for your donor and for the gift of life you receive unless they too have personally experienced it. It’s hard to put into words but I am deeply humbled and thankful for my donor Markeith Cobb, a 20-year-old young man with a full life ahead of him, that lost his life tragically in an auto incident in the prime of his life. I am posting a few photos as I remember him today.
