Remembering you

By Claire

In loving memory of Paul—our son

‘If tears could build a stairway, and memory a lane, I'd walk right up to Heaven and bring you home again.’

Paul was 22 years old when he passed away from an asthma attack.  

Paul watched a news program on organ donation and one night said to us if anything ever happens to him they could go ahead and use any part of him if it could save a life.

When the doctors at the hospital told us they would have to turn off the life support, one doctor asked ‘had we considered organ donation’—well we didn't have to make that decision because of what Paul had said to us.

It was Paul's wish that made it a bit easier for us. I think it is a great issue that should be discussed with families.
