Be A Hero

#AutismAwareness #SuicideAwareness #DonateLife At the age of 19, on July 2, 2020 Samuel Aaron Morgan tragically and unexpectedly passed away. Anyone who knew Sam was blessed to have met him. He lived life to the fullest and was an avid Martial Arts enthusiast, even teaching children’s classes. He was uniquely funny with a genuine and completely contagious laugh. Sam was diagnosed at age 11 as being on the autism spectrum. He spent his life being an absolutely amazing and truly kind person. However, there can be many tormenting aspects associated with people on the Autism Spectrum Disorder. In the end, his lack of self esteem, the frustrations and fears, and so much anger directed at himself led to Sam taking his own life. He never saw in himself all the wonderful and amazing things that his friends and family saw in him. Sam always wanted to be a hero. This became his reality through LifeGift, an organization who coordinates organ and tissue donation. He lives on in many others through his eyes, skin, bone, heart valves and vessel donations. These recipients now have a better life, and some of them, in fact, have life itself through the incredible generosity and kindness that defined Sam. The family thanks you very much for your consideration.
