Second Sxsw Hit-And-Run Victim Saves Lives Through Organ Donation

surrounded by scrapbooks of pictures and
momentos of his 34 years on Earth we
remembered William I really made him so
someday he might enjoy him with his kids
William was hit by an alleged drunk
driver last month in downtown Austin
during South by Southwest after over a
month of fighting for his life in the
hospital he succumbed to his injuries
they wheeled him out of the room and
they put this quilt on him it said the
gift of life living on in others and
that’s what William is doing living on
in others you see William is an organ
donor they called to say that four
people’s lives had been saved I’m just
grateful that he could give because
that’s what he loved to do April is
Donate Life month a time to bring
awareness to the importance of organ
donation the need is great and the
demand for organs far outweighs those
available he’s a hero he’s she’s my hero
Will’s heart will soon beat in somebody
else it’s somehow feels like we’re able
to stay in touch with the part of him
that’s living on
