Trees to be planted to honor organ donors

The trees will be planted and dedicated by transplant recipients honoring their donors. Families of donors are also memorializing their lost loved ones.
The first tree was planted at St. Anthony's Hospital in Lakewood Friday morning by Wes Cook, who received a liver transplant, and Diane Eckert, the sister of Wes' donor, Cody Crosby. 
Cody, a soldier in the 82nd Airborne Division, died in a car crash in 2013.  Continue reading
