Eliot, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A family from the town of Eliot who lost their only son in an accident while he was at college two years ago, is still trying to come to grips with his death. What has been a comfort for Mary and John Pappas is that, in death, their son Troy gave a better life to seven other people through organ donation.
Troy's mother Mary said, "We were very touched and happy that it was just another way to keep his memory alive. We are so proud of his donations."
Troy's father, John, agreed, "I think one of the biggest things is we have met some of the donors before and you can see some of these people that are spending time with their children, their grandchildren when if it wasn't for Troy's donation they may not of had that time."
