  • David had just graduated from high school. He was 18 years old and very loving. He was a true trickster, always playing jokes on people (especially me). We love him and we miss him, but we are glad that he could give someone else the ability to see.

  • I know she would be very pleased and proud to know that her eyes are now helping someone else to see the beauty in the world as she did. That was the kind of person she was. She will be missed by all who knew her, most of all by me.

  • When I was diagnosed with a progressive eye disease my only hope was corneal transplant surgery. I couldn’t believe that someone I didn’t even know would care enough to give their loved one’s corneas to me. Because of the gift of sight, I was able to touch the lives of others as an EMS technician.

  • It was taking me out of the darkness and putting me into the marvelous light. I did not realize I had so many freckles on my face until my transplant!
