To be an organ and tissue donor is an incredible act of kindness that should be honored in a special way. The Indiana Donor Network Honor Guard is offered to donor families and funeral directors as a way for families to honor their loved ones during their funeral service.
Through this program, Indiana Donor Network offers the families of donor heroes a chance to honor and celebrate their loved ones’ lifesaving gifts through a brief ceremony at the beginning of their funeral or memorial service.
The Donor Honor Guard ceremony is performed by Indiana Donor Network trained volunteer advocates, all of whom have a special connection to donation and transplantation.
The ceremony itself includes three components:
- The reading of a moment of silence provided by the family.
- A rose dedication.
- The reading of the poem “My Final Gift.”
