It's beautiful to think her father's heart was there. He wasn't. Not physically. But the part of him that loved her most? That was. Science is amazing.
When I got married, my mother was absent. She died nine years before I walked down the aisle. Many people told me she was there in spirit, but it didn't feel that way for me. Though it was one of the happiest days of my life, it was also bittersweet. I missed my mom. Anyone who has had such an important absence on such a big day can relate. Not only does this story reaffirm the importance of organ donation — her father gave this man his life back. Could there be a greater gift? But it also reaffirms something else: People are good.
