Donor Tributes

The Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank's mission is to fulfill the wishes of eye donors and their families to help another overcome blindness. The families of the donors below have chosen to honor the legacy left by their loved ones: the legacy of sight given to another through eye donation. Each of these donors moves, humbles and inspires us every day.

In Loving Memory of

Donte Lara

January 26. 2002 - December 9, 2012

Our precious little Angel was the kindest, little boy you ever met.  Donte' was our precious sweet boy who touched all who entered his life.  Donte's 5th grade teacher said it best, "Donte' had the most infectious smile, charming personality and endless compassion for all who crossed his path. He touched more people in his short life than most people do in a lifetime."   Seeing the world through Donte's eyes was a gift, an amazing experience, he loved life, he lived life in "full throttle" mode. He was so curious and loved adventure.    We just received a letter that his corneas were transplated in a 27 year old female receipant in Nevada and an 18 year old male who lives in Colorado.    Donte' loved Las Vegas and Ft. Collins. We are so happy that two people will have the opportunity to see the world because of our Donte'.    His vision of the world was loving,compassionate and full of adventure.
