David C. Owen
My husband David always supported Shelly's projects for the Donor Family Network, including many years working at the donor booth at the New York State Fair. He always told people donation was a good idea. He encouraged many to do it. When he passed away suddenly in 2010, we were notified by transplant team that he was a registered donor. I gave permission for anything that was viable could be used. When my daughter spoke to the transplant agency she was shocked to find out her dad had only actually signed a donor card at the State Fair that previous September (he died in October). He had worked 5 or more years at the fair and only signed one that last year. He always took his time.
