Vincent John Salvati – my nephew

Vincent fell into a coma and was declared brain dead on Friday, Feb 7, 2014. He would have been 25 this year.

Unbeknownst to us, he also signed up to be an organ donor.

They are preparing his organs for donation now, and between 6-10 families will know miracles very soon, because of Vincent.

My sister and Vincent’s father are struggling through this most unthinkable and excruciating loss.

I am struggling too.

Vincent was born in 1989. He is my only nephew.

He was a very loved and protected child.

In 2008 he came up to Seattle to visit with us for a few weeks. We rented a cabin in the San Juan Islands, and went whale watching.

These are pics from that visit and other photos of him.
