His mother, Rossey Mancebo, says her pain is tempered by knowing he saved lives through organ donation.
"I don't make the rules," she said. "God makes them. I just live by them. And I just want to keep my son's legacy alive. That's our hope. And I want to encourage also how important it is for you to think about signing and registering to donate your organs."
LiveOnNY presented Kingston's parents with a certificate and medal for their decision to donate his organs and give the gift of life.
