Today, the 22nd, is what I will always count as the day you passed. Officially, it's the 20th, the day you committed suicide, but, for me, it will always be the 22nd. It's actually very fitting since 22 is always your number. You managed to work it out that on the 22nd, they took you into surgery to harvest your organs. You unknowingly saved 5 lives that day with 7 life-saving organs. You were a near record number donor - the max of organs that can be donated is 8. Being young and healthy played a huge part in this no doubt.
Meeting your recipients has been a huge factor in our healing process. They are all such great, deserving people; which, I am thankful for, because if part of you had gone to someone bad, that would not have settled well with me at all.
My last few hours with you here on earth will always be so incredibly precious to me. Feeling you pass, as you went up to Heaven, is one of God's greatest gifts to me EVER - besides being you and Morgan's mom.
From Stoney LaRue's song 'Velvet':
'Come down and watch your first step; don't do anything you might regret; you're much to innocent to suffer; it wasn't all sunny days; begging through your memories; but the rain came down and you covered me in velvet.'
Love you more than Dr Pepper!
