Tim Burton

My brother Tim died on July 5, 2009.

He had autism and in spite of the barriers in his life he managed to live in his own apartment, work and make friends. When he died, I was not sure if I could go on, but with his gifts to others through his tissue and organs I feel like his life served a valuable purpose.

I know that Tim would be so pleased to hear his organs helped so many other people.

Thank you for all of the work you do to honor those who have given to make life possible for others.
