I wonder if it has more to do with the suicide watch.

As a registered organ donor, this is the last thing I would want anyone to think about when it comes to receiving my organs. Eventually, I'm going to die. Hopefully I'm "gonna die an old...old lady warm in her bed, not here, not this night. " (Thank you Jack, I'll never let go.) But the fact remains, I could die tomorrow in a freak accident. I would be missed by my extended family and friends, but I really think it would only devastate my immediate family: three people (and a cat if he understood what was happening). I would like to imagine that maybe that death could also make a equally positive change in three or four other people's lives if they got my heart, lungs, kidneys, and liver.

Basically, the death is going to happen if it happens. Assuming no one is coming after me with a gun for organ donation. It can be a meaningless tragedy to everyone it effects or it can have just a little bit more meaning. So as far as I'm concerned: by the time you would be taking the organs, please enjoy! I want you happy, not thinking about me dying. I have a family to do that for me, you on the other hand get to live and that bring some good to the world that would otherwise be missing. If we're in the same area and want to give flowers to my family once, that would be cool, but that's more than enough. It would be nice for them to remember that although my death was tragic, some part of me still did a little bit of good and that it brought life to someone else.
