After Matthew Boylen died 11 years ago, his donated heart went into Lucy Boenitz. Now, his family is hearing his heart beat again for the first time in 11 years.
Boenitz met with Boylen's family for the first time and now his family is able to hear his heart beat again.

For 11 years Lucy has carried something special inside her, the heart of Matthew, a firefighter who died in a car accident, and now his mom got the courage to hear her son's heart beat again.
"Here we go it's probably going to be going a million miles an hour", says Lucy who is overly excited to share her heartbeat with Matthew's mother.

Matthew's daughter got to hear the heart she used to listen to as a toddler and immediately burst into tears out of sadness and happiness at the same time.

His heart beat strong enough to bring the two families together and he will be remembered and cherished for long after his death.
This video is heartbreaking, seeing these two families come together over a broken heart that once stopped beating too soon, but is now living its second life in another human being, bonging these two families for eternity.
