  • I must be a survivor in many ways...
Today Magda was cremated and laid to rest.

You were all with me when i stood up and walked to the pulpit to read my final goodbye to her in front of a full church.

Although overwhelmed with grief I managed to get a hold of myself.
I watched her coffin and read 2 pages.
A lot of it were things that would have made her smile.
She was stubborn, but Iloved her.

Goodbye Magda. That is for here.
Stay around as one day I will greet you again, free of HIV.

Your friend and soulmate Herman

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Herman,

YOu are in my prayers today. Even tho we have never ment my love for you is like my love for my brother. We are a family here and right now this family is feeling your hurt, and holding you close. Remember, she is not really that far away from you, you have your memories, and if you ever need to talk to her go ahead, she is there, in your heart and she will listen and you will feel her right beside you, loveing you as she always has.

Love Wendly

Oh Herman!  :-* Many kisses, much love, a few tears.
Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

I cannot even find the words to express the pain I am feeling for you today.

In Love and Awe.
The Bible contains 6 admonishments to homosexuals,
and 362 to heterosexuals.
This doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals,
It's just that they need more supervision.

My thoughts are with you today.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."
