First, get support. If you have not done so already, please contact another family member, friend, or clergy member to be with you immediately. The emotional and physical assistance these people can provide is very important during this difficult time.
Second, consider organ and/or tissue donation. If your loved one is an organ/tissue donor (or if organ/tissue donation is something you or your loved one’s legal next of kin would consider) and donation is possible, contact the Coroner’s Office at (309) 888-5210 immediately to discuss this with a representative of the office.
