UW Organ and Tissue Donation Donor Tributes
Following are tributes to organ donors and special words of gratitude from recipients. Giving the gift of life through organ donation carries with it a wide range of emotions, from sadness and grief, to hope and peace. The spirit of organ donation is captured in the following poem by Amanda Bradley:
Love Lives On
Those we love are never lost to us.
We feel them in so many special ways,
through our friends they always cared about and
dreams they left behind,
in beauty that they added to our days,
in words of wisdom we still carry with us and
memories that never will be gone.
Those we love are never really lost to us,
for everywhere their special love lives on.
