Paul chose to be a donor. When he took his driver’s exam he made the decision to check “donor” on his license and his family was honored to see to it that his wishes were fulfilled. Two women in their 50’s received his kidneys and a gentleman in his 70’s received his liver. Two other people received his corneas and his heart valves brought new life to 3 special people. At this time we know of 69 people in 16 states who have received the gift of life from Paul. Those of us who love Paul continue to pray for these recipients that their lives may be enriched because they received the gift of life from one who we love deeply and honorably. Read More
