Corneal Transplant

The day after Gessner died I received a call from some transplant coordinator who said that Gess's corneas were good and could be transplanted. She also said that there was a match waiting, which apparently is not that common. She said if I gave my permission the transplant could take place that day. Of course I consented...Gess wanted anything possible to be transplanted. I received a notice yesterday that the corneal transplant was successful and that someone can now see because of Gessner's gift. It doesn't make the loss any easier, but it makes me happy that something good could come out of it.
