What about heart donation?

it doesn't matter just take it away.

  • If you'd like to donate your heart or other organs when you die, be sure to tell members of your family. In some states, you can state your wishes on the back of your driver's license. You may also contact an organ donation organization to ask for more information.
  • Families of donors don't have to pay for removing their loved one's organs.
  • The family of a possible donor makes the final decision. If they haven't been asked to donate and they'd like to, they should ask the doctor or nurse. If the family decides not to donate, the organs won't be removed.
  • Most donors give multiple organs. For example, the heart, liver, kidneys, pancreas and lungs might be taken from one donor. The hospital staff person in charge of identifying donors will find out if the organs are suitable for transplant. Then this person works with the OPO representative to coordinate the distribution of organs.

i die a little

every time we say goodbye, i die a little
every time we say goodbye,i wonder why a little

I wanted to say something

I wanted to say something about letters of condolence.

Almost nobody is good at them They are hard to write. It's difficult to know what to say. They are hard to read. You know that no matter how well you do it, it's going to be painful to read, because that's just the way it is.

Those left behind feel pain whether you write or not. Open yourself to those in grief and don't be afraid to say what you really feel, even if it's to tell them, "I'm so sorry. I don't know what to say, but I'm here for you." There is beauty in the honest confrontation of death and grief and only more hurt in the awkward avoidance of bringing it into the light.
