The woman said when her father died, all his organs were donated except his bone which her mother kept.
In her words"
"The only thing my Mom reserved was his bone. She doesn’t remember why-- but she asked them to set aside some bone."
She said she would end up crying whenever she tried to play the piano with her right hand because her left hand had been rendered useless by the accident.
