The Ultimate Gift

One of my cousin's children was in a tragic car accident.  After the accident Shauna's brain stem had massive swelling and my cousin (Heidi) made the difficult decision to take sweet Shauna off of life support and donate her organs.  Heidi said that she felt that the donation of Shauna's heart was the ultimate Christmas gift.  Heidi has been amazing and the epitome of grace through out this terrible experience.  Shauna was 16 years old, an ice skater, a gifted violinist and wanted to go to Stanford.  This video was of her skating when she was younger.

Gigi, my heart is just breaking for your cousin ... what a lovely young lady her daughter is, so very graceful. I'm so sorry for their loss.
