I am not a person who likes to dwell on sad or depressing things, I love happiness and happy times! Although sad, this does makes me very happy and fills me with so much pride. My brother wasn't able to discuss the events of my nephew during the time of preparation; however, last night I called him to check in. He told me some things that he couldn't bring himself to deal with earlier that now I believe he's beginning to reconsider, feel better about, and is making him feel proud. My nephew did not smoke or drink, and other than the heart attack was a healthy 34 year old young man. My brother related to me that my nephew's organs went toward saving 63 lives, his vitals to save about 29, and 80% of his tissue and bones will go toward saving the lives of many others. I am so very proud of him for wanting todo this. I'm glad too my brother is gradually accepting the wonderful contribution his son has made. Maybe it was sooner than my nephew had expected, but he did what he wanted to do and it's a good thing! Just thought I'd share!
