Samantha McCarthy, 11

Ralph Standley, 93

Mike Harden, 64

Life donor: Samantha McCarthy, 11

Samantha McCarthy was diagnosed at age 6 with Fanconi anemia, a blood disease that affects bone marrow. Some drugs being used in clinical trials worked for a while, but doctors told Nikki and Dan McCarthy that their only daughter would need a bone-marrow transplant.

Farmer, mentor: Ralph Standley, 93

He worked so tirelessly harvesting his beloved crops that his wife, Thelma, often would tote meals into the fields so he could eat on his combine; he was so dedicated that his family practically had to kidnap him for a vacation. It was fitting, then, that as Ralph Standley Jr. lay in bed the day he died, he asked whether Buddy Salyer - the man he entrusted with his land - was taking in the harvest, because the time was ideal. Yes, Standley's family assured him, Buddy was in the fields. "That's good," Standley said. And with that, he rested easy and soon passed from this world in peace.

Friend to thousands: Mike Harden, 64

Mike Harden spent 27 years as a columnist in Columbus inspiring readers and illuminating the lives of so many people he encountered. He often used his gift for writing to help those who had been overlooked.
