WDT: Local Youth Honored at Rose Parade for Organ Donation

    Two parents who lost their 16 year old son two years ago in a pedestrian/motor vehicle accident will be watching on New Year's Day as a floral image of Ryan Converse will be featured on a float at the Rose Parade honoring organ donors.
     Joseph and Vicki Converse lost their son, but feel he was able to live on through the donation made the night he died in the hospital emergency room.
     The Converse' are also avid HOTLINE listeners and our best wishes go out to them as they enjoy this chance to honor their son and his gift of life to others.
