The families of people who gave the gift of life through organ donation honored their lost loved ones on Thursday.

The families took some time to place ornaments on the Christmas Tree of Life for those lost.

The event was put on by the Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency and Rapides Regional Medical Center.

"To me personally it means a lot. My son was an organ donor,” said Larabee Thompson, a family advocate for LOPA. “So, I’m honored to both be able to honor my son and his legacy and also help grieving families through this holiday time."

They have been doing this event for more than ten years.
