Donor Memorial Garden
At UNOS, there is a Donor Memorial Garden that we were able to visit. The garden was beautiful, but it started raining on us so we had to hurry our visit a bit.
The first thing you come to is the Wall of Tears. It's a little difficult to see in my picture, but the stones that protrude from the wall have the following written on them ~ friend, wife, son, daughter, brother, sister, mother, husband, father.
This is followed by the Gift of Life Fountain.
"Water flowing over the sculpted bronze hands symbolizes the gesture of giving and sharing, through donation."
The Wall of Names ~
We were able to place flowers in the cubby holes and along the wall in memory of our loved ones. Here are the flowers I placed for Abby.
