Organ Donor Saves 5 Lives
Dennis John Malloosseril was 25 years old when he was shot at St. Thomas Syrian Orthodox Knanaya Church. His organs were donated to save lives. Five recipients of the organs from this young man who was killed last November, attended a memorial service for him at the church where the shooting happened. Before that, they had a very emotional meeting with Dennis' parents. James O'Hea, age 57 of Woodbridge, N.J. said they bent down and listened to his heart. Malloosseril was shot on November 23 as he tried to break up an argument between a fellow church member and her estranged husband. That was so sad, however, his organs gave life to 5 other people helped turn sadness into happiness for others.
