It Takes All
The extension of life happens in every act of loving kindness, as well as in the loving memories and life that live on after the earthly veil has lifted.
Amber wrote "IT TAKES ALL" for the Donor Family Tribute, an annual event hosted by Banner University Medical Center and the Donor Network of Arizona to honor organ/tissue donors and their families. When someone's life is helped because of the contribution of someone else who may no longer walk in the physical, this sacred connection transcends the veils of life. Families grieving the physical loss of their loved ones may feel a sense of comfort knowing that their loved one's life contributes to another...living on in other ways. And the recipients of this life are profoundly grateful for the gift of life.
"IT TAKES ALL" was also used by Melinda Peterson at the Garth England Blood Center annual donor appreciation night (Fort Collins, CO) in a gratitude presentation honoring those that donate blood. In 2014, Melinda received 54 blood products that saved her life. Read more about her story here: https://uchealth.org/news/blood-donors-thanked-for-saving-womans-life .
