"..the right thing to do."
Colleen & Murdock Smith
Posted by Robert Doublett
But for a family in Sydney, their grief at the loss of their daughter has been assuaged to some degree by the knowledge that her death is helping others.
16-year-old Jillian Whelan died earlier this week following a car accident early Monday near Dalem Lake.
In hospital in Halifax, her family members made the decision to donate her organs for transplant.
The CBC's Holly Conners spoke with them about that decision today.
She met Jillian's mother and father, Colleen and Murdock Smith, and her aunt Kathleen Whelan, in the Smith's backyard.

Chicago: The Musical
Winner! 6 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical
Winner! 6 Drama Desk Awards, Outstanding Revival of a Musical
Premiering in 1975 and the hit of the 1997 Broadway season in a production that originated at City Center's Encore! series, Chicago won six Tony Awards including Best Revival and later the Academy Award as Best Picture of the Year.
In roaring twenties Chicago, chorine Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband Amos to take the rap...until he finds out he's been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another 'Merry Murderess' Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the 'American Dream': fame, fortune and acquittal. This sharp edged satire features a dazzling score that sparked immortal staging by Bob Fosse.
