Midwest Transplant Network honors Shawnee family after son drowns

SHAWNEE, Kan. - A Shawnee family breaks their silence after losing their six-year-old little boy more than a year ago.

Noah Davis drowned in an apartment pool in June of 2012. On Saturday his family was honored with a special gift that will show Noah's spirit to the world.

"Just to know that his face will be seen and that he's remembered is really special. It really is, "said Sara Davis, Noah's mother.

On Saturday, the Midwest Transplant Network helped Noah's parent's get through the pain. The organization, which helps facilitate organ donations, created a flora graph of Noah that was selected to be part of the Rose Parade in Pasadena, California in 2014.

"The fact that he can't live; the fact that he can't live here today is another reason I should be living and I should be enjoying life. I should try to get out there and let people know what an awesome life this can be," said Jason Davis, Noah's father.

Noah's likeness was made with flowers and will be on display for the world to see alongside 80 other memorial flora graphs.

The 125th Rose Parade is planned for Wednesday, January 1.
