Kyle Denton

Organ Donor


September 5, 2023

Kyle was 35-years-old when he left this world. He saved 4 lives through organ donation. He was an amazing person full of love and light. He was intelligent and kind. He was a mechanic. He could take all kinds of vehicles apart and put them right back together. He was a friend to many. He spent many hours over the last year of his life doing outreach in the homeless community. I was privileged to spend 11 years with him, and we created a beautiful family. He left behind 4 children and his dog. He will forever be missed, but we are so proud that he was able to save lives so that others could have their loved ones longer.

Saying thank you

Many donor families find that corresponding with the transplant recipient or recipients can be a powerful experience. Donor families can take comfort in sharing stories and sending well wishes to those who live on because of their loved one.

Should you choose to connect, we're here to help. Letters and cards can be a tremendous gift to both the donor families and recipients. To protect everyone, we provide guidelines for communication. Names remain confidential unless both parties agree to share those with one another, and we provide a correspondence address. We are happy to share sample letters to help you get started.

For more information about corresponding with recipients, please call us at 615-564-3649.

We can only do it together
