David and Jon's Story by Kelli Emmons. on 2014-11-06 09:55:26
I am paying tribute to my husband David Emmons who received a kidney from our dear friend, Jon Diggs. He was the first person to get tested and he was a match. The transplant was in March 2014. We are so very thankful for Jon's bravery and courage and to his family and our family and friends for all there support. His wife, Amy is my best friend so it makes our family have a lifelong connection. I thank God he blessed Jon with the gift of life.
