Daniel Couey

Our son, Daniel Kerry Couey lost his fight for life but won the battle for love on Wednesday, October 26th, 2011. Danny received his first heart transplant in 1997 when he was 14 years old. In 2004 he was re-listed to wait for another heart. He received it on Monday, October 24th and then passed Life on by donating his eyes. Danny never defined himself by his limitations and is an inspiration to all who knew him. He loved life fiercely and never feared the unknown, especially death. Teaching people to be true to themselves and to do the right thing was a calling of his. He said," everyone deserves a second chance, so don't blow it." After receiving his 2nd chance we were all in awe of his donor family's gift of life in the midst of their heartbreak. Then having faced his sister Mary's death, our entire family now truly understands what that gift means. Danny donated his eyes so others can see the true beauty of a smile, the love of family and friends, and the undefinable price of living. Danny's wish is for everyone to sign up to be an organ donor. It is the greatest gift you can give. Danny is survived by his parents Kerry and Rose Couey of Lawrenceville, GA, sister, Julie Couey, nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles. Danny Couey's Celebration of Life Party will be from 3pm - 9pm Sunday November 6th, 2011 at Rocksprings Farm www.rockspringsfarm.com 3-6pm food, drinks, toasts and stories to share. If you have a story, and I know you do, please feel free to share them. 4:30 we will gather for a tribute to Danny. 6-9pm bonfire bring some pictures, share some stories. "Those who live in our hearts live forever." Please sign up to be an organ donor. Danny donated his eyes so others could see.
