Thank you for precious gift and bringing my boyfriend back

Man in car, tearfully grateful for organ donor

My boyfriend is 47 years old. He was experiencing end stage heart failure. We didn’t know how bad it was until the doctors said he needed a heart. With less than six months to live, everything was turning grim. Four days ago we got the word they found a heart. My boyfriend is doing so good after his surgery, he’s already out of ICU. We don’t know anything about the donor, but I’m forever grateful. Thank you for this precious gift and bringing my boyfriend back. We pray for that family daily!
