A Mansfield man got a second chance when he received a heart donation. Garland McCruter was an ordinary musician until he learned he was having heart problems. After a year of waiting, he received a call January 26 from Cleveland Clinic, informing him he had two hours to get to the hospital to receive a transplant.

Doctors told his family that the surgery would be six to eight hours, but the surgery went smoother than expected and only lasted three hours.

 McCruter returned to church and to his music this weekend at Faith Temple Church of God in Christ.

"I can only say that God is a good god," McCruter exclaimed. "I've been playing in church for over 45 years, and I have great faith in him. Great faith."

The rest of the congregation was ecstatic to have McCruter back. McCruter wishes to thank the family of the anonymous donor.
