Ways to Honor Your Loved One’s Donation Decision

As you’re writing an obituary in honor of your loved one, you may want to share their decision to be an organ, eye, or tissue donor. Below are some sample phrases to consider using. 

  • He/She/They made the decision to give the gift of life through organ, eye, and tissue donation.
  • His/Her/Their donated organs saved the lives of five people. 
  • He/She/They had a loving and giving nature and made the decision to give the gift of life to help others have a second chance at life. 
  • His/Her/Their giving spirit continues in death, as she was able to donate her tissues and touch the lives of as many as 75 people. 
  • He/She/They was/were a giving person in life and that giving continued in death as he was able to help many others live by donating her organ, eyes, and tissues. 
  • His/Her/Their family honored her generous decision to give the gift of life through organ, eye, and tissue donation. 
  • His/Her/Their final act of kindness was to give the gift of life through organ, eye, and tissue donation.
