One donor's story: Keith Lundell
Keith was very out-going. He had a fun loving personality. He loved people and people loved him. He knew people wherever he would go. He was a talented speaker as well—both at work, for outside organizations, etc. He had a beautiful singing voice and you could most often find him either smiling or laughing! He loved spending time with his family. He always dressed very neatly, well-put together, yet fun!
Family; making people happy and feel that they were welcomed wherever he was; giving of himself and his time.
Keith had decided many years prior to the car accident that he was going to be a donor. He was a registered donor and we all knew his wishes. He shared those wishes with us at our Christmas dinner in December of 2003. He said, “once I die, I won’t need those parts.” Little did we know, he would be a donor so quickly–May of 2004. He provided hope to 3 organ recipients and 26 tissue recipients.
