Rozell's Story

Rozell Wright often wears a photo pendant depicting her son, Ira Boynes. She says that if Ira’s love for life and for helping others was contagious, then you could have caught them both from him. Even as an adult, he would announce his arrival through the front door by yelling playfully, “Honey, I’m home. I love you, Mom.” Those are words that Rozell would especially love to hear again, but replaying them in her memory is now the only way. Ira’s words and life were silenced one day in 2003 when he was 33 years old and visiting in Virginia. After his younger brother ended up in a tough situation, Ira went to his rescue. In the process of helping him, Ira was murdered.

Sandy's Story

“I think everyone should register as an eye, tissue and organ donor. Donating Patrick’s organs has helped me as much as it has helped the recipients. Without the donation, I wouldn’t be able to be here today, to say his name, to have everyone remember that Patrick Lee Miller was a special person.”
