My name is Nancy Alsman, Jamie Walker's Mom. I have been keeping up to date through Jamie on Chris throughout the past week and a half. Please know that my thoughts and prayers have been and continue to be with you. As a liver transplant recipient I also want you to know how very thankful I am that you chose to give others another chance at life through organ donation. His life will live on in others. Keep the Lord in your hearts and minds. He will see you through.
