My beautiful and vibrant 61 year old mother died suddenly last year after being diagnosed six months earlier with a brain tumour. She had the most beautiful eyes, an eye for beauty, a sparkle in her eye for fun, an eye for a husband for me (she found me one), an eye for a good recipe and an eye for a bargain!
It is only nine months since she died and I miss her so much - as do her grandchildren and her husband of 40 years that she left behind. It is so comforting to know that even though we don't have her, out there somewhere are two lucky people who benefited from the donation of her eyes.
What a beautiful world they must see through those eyes! In a way, her fabulous legacy lives on.
