My son was an organ donor. The day after he was killed in the accident my daughter-in-law who is only 23 years old received a phone call from the donor people. They asked her 50 questions about every organ. She was on the phone forever and was hysterical when they got through. Ended up none of Matt's organs were left to use. She went though all of that and nothing good came of it. That made it even harder for her. She can't say any part of him is living in someone else or that he saved someone by donating. I too am a donor and have though about removing my name as one, because I don't want my loved ones to ever go through this.
