Frank Deasy's wife talks about her husband

I wrote last year about the sad death of Frank Deasy, writer of BBC1's The Passion, first broadcast in the Easter of 2008.  I only met Frank once, in February 2008, but we often talked  by email and phone before then, and a great deal of what his wife Marie now shares in The Observer rings true:

Frank Deasy's wife talks about his plea for organ donors: 'He just couldn't believe the impact his story had'
Emmy-winning screenwriter Frank Deasy's Observer article about the plight of transplant patients, written just before his death, provoked an astonishing response. As his last TV drama comes to the screen, his wife Marie talks about his lasting legacy
Tracy McVeigh

It is a moving and beautifully written piece.
