Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - When Debbie Pouliot lost her son Jeff to a stroke, she was a devastated mother. But today she says Jeff's decision to be an organ donor changed all that.

Debbie Puliot, Son Donated Organs: "That was something good to us, that something uplifting was happening because all our news was bad. That was wonderful."

Leroy Wegschied, Otter Tail County/Heart Recipient: “They did not choose to die but they chose to give life after death and that made me realize that it was meant to be.”

Leroy received Jeff's heart. It saved his life.

And right now, organ donors all across Minnesota, including Jeff, are being honored with what's called the "Wall of Heroes" at North Memorial Medical Center. The 126 photos represent someone who gave the gift of life.
