Jim and Jessie Donahue had a plant named in memory of their son Kilian Richard Donahue.

Kilian Donahue Clematis

Dear Jim & Jessie,
I have a child who has been very ill for the past 8 years. Please know that my heart goes out to you for your suffering and your loss. I understand, to some extent, your situation. A child is so precious. I've ordered Kilian for my garden & promise you it will never be just another plant in my collection but a way to keep his short life a beautiful memory in yet another place.
Sincerely- Pat Smith.
