I had to do it or I would die.
I might die anyway,
but I had to take the chance.
They said "Yes" without even being asked.
On May 24, 2000, my uncle Rickey
and my friend Jerry went into surgery,
and had part of their lung removed.
They were put into me.
They are fine.
There are no words to describe...
feelings too deep to express.
All I can do is say "Thank You."
