Robbie made this video about Patrick , in hopes to get more people to sign up to be organ donors.

He tried to make it as an actual video but he ended up crying half way through, so he decided to do it as a series of pictures so it would be easier on him.

Robbie - Happy Birthday!   What an amazing job he did (have the chills thinking  about it)   You have to be very proud of him. What a wonderful tribute - what a hard day tomorrow will be.

What an amazing young man. This definitely was a tear jerker, but such a powerful message.  ((hugs)) to you and Robbie.

That was amazing!  I was able to donate John's corneas and received a letter that now  Two people can see.

 John was so riddled with cancer (melanoma) I talked with my stepson, stepdaughter, my daughter ... and we donated John's earthly body to medical science. Hoping with more research they can come up with better treatment/ research on the melanoma.  It was a hard decision, but hoping we can help in some way.

Thank You Sam & Robbie

Wow, Robbie did an amazing job!  You should be very proud.  You can tell he put a lot or work into it.  It really gave me goosebumps.    Robbie: Happy 14th Birthday!  Hugs to your whole family!

HI Sam:

It is a pure testament that your son was raised by wonderful and caring parents as yourself. I started to get a lump in my throat when I read that he tried and tried to do it via the recorder but he cried....I am sure Paul was watching and telling everyone what a great son he has. I too re-posted this to my fb page, I am trying to get the 'word' out to be a donor. MANY people don't understand how important it is to donate. 

Please accept my (((Hugs))) and give one to your son as well!!!!!!!

Samantha, I posted this video to my Facebook page.  One of my good friends is a transplant nurse with One Legacy, I'm sure she'll be very interested in it.  Robbie did an amazing job with this, I hope the message spreads far and wide.  Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, and happy birthday to Robbie.

What an amazing your man you have. This is something that was done from the heart and you can feel the love behind it. I have always believed in organ donation- Enjoy Thanksgiving/ Birthday with your son.
