Tissue and organ donations have a profound effect on families who have lost a loved one.

Sherry Linzmeier's son, Dan, was 21 years old when he died, and became an organ and tissue donor in November 1996. In addition, Loni Wendt, a Waupun resident whose daughter, Melissa, age 16, donated tissues and corneas after her death in 2002, will share her experience.
