Lillian and Rudy Ross were happily married with a baby on the way when Lillian’s world was tragically turned upside down.

The now 20-year-old had been with Rudy since she was a junior in high school and thought she knew everything about him — but unfortunately, she had no idea how depressed he really was. “I didn’t think it was as bad as it was,” the Minnesota resident said. “He kept to himself quite a bit; he didn’t really talk about his feelings and stuff. That’s why I didn’t know how bad it actually was.”

When she was eight months pregnant with their son, Leonard, she and Rudy got into a fight that ended with Rudy fatally shooting himself. He died on June 7, 2016, leaving behind his wife and unborn child — but his death ended up saving lives.

They were married for less than a year when Rudy died, but they had already been through so much together. Lillian had miscarried before getting pregnant with Leonard, who would never get to meet his dad.

Lillian was completely devastated when he passed away, but she knew he could help others, so she agreed to donate his organs, including his liver, heart, and pancreas. What she didn’t expect, however, was to be asked to give his face to someone else.
