When Kate and Derek were walking out of the courthouse after getting their marriage license, Derek Geer brought up the idea of organ donation.
He told Kate how important he thought it was. That you wouldn’t need your organs after you died anyway, and that it could save someone else’s life.
Kate said she remembers telling Derek, “That’s gross.”

HONOLULU (AP) — EDITOR'S NOTE — On Dec. 7, 1941, as Japanese bombs rained down on Pearl Harbor, The Associated Press' chief of bureau in Honolulu, Eugene Burns, was unable to get out the urgent news of the historic attack that would draw the U.S. into World War II. The military had already taken control of all communication lines, so Burns was left without a line to the outside world. In Washington, AP editor William Peacock and staff got word of the attack from President Franklin D. Roosevelt's press secretary. In the language and style used by journalists of his era, including the use of a disparaging word to describe the Japanese that was in common use, Peacock dictated the details of the announcement. Seventy-five years after their original publication, the AP is re-publishing these dispatches.
