    Background: MIKE KASPERAK, AMERICA'S FIRST ADULT HEART TRANSPLANT PATIENT, WAS BURIED LAST FRIDAY IN CLEVELAND, OHIO.

    THE FUNERAL WAS A MODEST, SIMPLE CEREMONY, ATTENDED BY SOME 40 FRIENDS AND RELATIVES.

    MRS. KASPERAK WAS PRESENT AT THE FUNERAL.

    FROM STANFORD UNIVERSITY, WHERE THE TRANSPLANT OPERATION HAD TAKEN PLACE, CAME A BOUQUET OF LILLIES; MORE FLOWERS ARRIVED FROM KASPERAK'S FORMER FELLOW WORKERS; BUT THE OCCASION WAS FAR REMOVED FROM THE GLARE OF PUBLICITY WHICH HAD SURROUNDED THE OPERATION.

    (MIKE KASPERAK DIED FROM KIDNEY AND LIVER FAILURE, AND OTHER COMPLICATIONS, ALTHOUGH HIS SUBSTITUTE HEART WAS WORKING WELL).
