I don't know the kind of things about you that most people think define a person. Those first-date-basics pieces of information: favorite food, where you grew up, what you do for a living, if you prefer cats or dogs (though I have a suspicion that you like both). What I know about you is something that many people will never have the divine opportunity to learn about another person. The thing I know about you is something that can only be found in the most special sort of person. It is hidden, illusive, maybe not present at all in some. That thing is the ability to save.
You have saved me and given me a new life. You said "Yes", first in joining the registry, and then again that wonderful day when they called you and said you were a match. You have given hope, faith and love. You are selfless beyond selfless. There are hardly more words to describe what you are and what you have given.
Thanks to your selfless gift, you have given me many more happy years in my very young marriage. You have given many more years of joyful teaching and music making. You have given me the opportunity to have children of my own someday, and maybe even grandchildren. You have given me thankfulness and deep gratitude and faith in human nature.
Thank you, dear donor. Dear 35 year old male donor. When I asked where you are from, they told me that you are a resident of earth. I think you are certainly bound to be a resident of heaven as well.
Love and gratitude,
