Good Things Out of Hard Times - Lions Eye Institute

July 19 2011

I got an amazing letter in the mail today that I wanted to share. But first some background.

I don't remember when this happened, but just after my father passed, I got a phone call from the Lions Eye Institute. It was just hours after and I remember being a bit annoyed at getting the phone call. But after a quick chat with the family, we thought this is something Dad would have approved of. Since Dad was cremated, putting Dad's eyes to good use seemed like the right thing to do.

Today I got a letter thanking the family. Dad's eyes were used in a transplant to help save someone's sight. After a bit of sadness a big smile and a very proud feeling set in. I am so happy would go do something good.
