Go rest high on that mountain
Your work on earth is done
Go to heaven a shoutin’
Love for the Father and Son
Sad news for everyone who has been pulling for her – Florida Eliza passed away this morning.
While I was a patient at Johns Hopkins in 1967, a child passed away unexpectedly, and there didn’t seem to be a reason or an explanation why. “Some people just aren’t fighters,” a doctor told my father, the best answer he had at the moment.
Eliza was a fighter, in every sense of the word. She was only 17 years old, but her defective heart hung in there, fought and scrapped for every beat. But sometimes… sometimes the good guys lose.
You can pay your respects to Eliza and her family, even if you live on the other side of the planet: sign an organ donation card. Do it as a memorial for Eliza, and for the next Eliza – because there are plenty more people out there waiting for a vital organ.
