Dear Donor Family,
I am writing to thank you for the organ donation from your loved one. I am very sorry for your loss, and I want you to know that your gift has given me a chance to live a normal, productive life.
I needed a transplant because, my heart and kidney were failing, without your amazing gift I probably wouldn’t be here with my family. I want to thank you so much for this amazing gift of life. Since the transplant, I have been able to watch my kids grow, promote from Jr. High and enter into High school. I have been able attend family gatherings and some traveling with my wife and kids. For this, I am very grateful to you and your loved one. My family and I will always remember your act of kindness and generosity. I will cherish my gift for the rest of my life.
Every year I light a candle and pray in remembrance of your loved one. I pray that God gives you the strength to keep going. Sorry it has taken us so long to write this letter, I had some complications during my transplant, it made it difficult to write and proceed with my normal life for a while. But very thankful my body accepted the organs.
Thank you so much once again for your gift you don’t know how much this means to me and my family.
