    Unique 'Floragraph' to be unveiled, honoring local organ donor
    Longview, TX (Nov. 18, 2015) - For the first time, the family of Lynden Bell will see their loved one's likeness in flowers made from recycled materials as a tribute to this man who chose to donate his organs to save lives. This special "floragraph" is set to be unveiled Thursday, Nov. 19, in a special ceremony at Good Shepherd Medical Center.
    Three years ago, right around Thanksgiving, Lynden was walking from his home and tragically struck by a drunk drive. In their pain and sorrow, his family made the decision to carry on his legacy - choosing to give the gift of life - by donating his organs to save the lives of three others.
    The floragraph will then make its way to Pasadena, Calif., to be featured on the Donate Life float in the 127th Annual Rose Parade on Jan. 1, 2016, a New Year's Day tradition that precedes the Rose Bowl® football game and is broadcast nationwide. More information about the float can be found at

    Date: Thursday, Nov. 19, 2015
    Time: 12:30 p.m.
    Location: Good Shepherd Medical Plaza I Fifth Floor, Room Two (701 E Marshall Ave.)
