It was the hardest thing Amanda Reynolds ever had to do. Her husband, David, was gunned down in a road rage murder, and she watched as he was removed from life support, leaving her a widow with four young children. But hundreds of miles north of her Joplin, Missouri home, a man they call “Spider” was dying in a hospital from heart disease. Amanda’s decision to donate David’s heart to Spider helped save his life and kept a piece of her husband alive as well. Now the two will forever consider each other “family.” The video shows their emotional reunion.
