On the day of our memorial Service we would like to make up a list of name of friends/loved ones who have passed away due to HIV/AIDS.

Mark (Aztecan)  read the list for us last year, hopefully we can have some music playing and candles being lite by those attending while the reading is being done.

I think it's a wonderful and respectful way of remembering our friends who have passed on, so please use this thread to put forward names you would like read out or you can PM me, the choice is yours.

If someone can help with candles I would appreciate it (tea candles are fine) I have no room in my case to bring them with me. I won't have anytime to go shopping before I get to the AMG hotel.


I would like to nominated JODY to do the reading this year, if you have someone else in mind please don't hesitae to put a name forward, or just vote aye for Jody

Look forward to seeing you all at the service.

Aroha

Thank you for compiling the Memorial list. Last year's event was very moving for me and greatly appreciated. As long as we keep these people in our hearts they are never truly gone from us and by giving voice to their names, we ensure that the world hasn't, and never will, forget them either.

Sadly, I just received an email to let me know that "Big Al", an hiv activist (and volunteer) in Liverpool died July 3rd (Tuesday). With regret, I'd like to add his name.

Big Al

He will be greatly missed in the Mersyside area and he would be honoured to know he was being remembered half-way around the world, in DC no less. Thanks, guys, for giving me the venue to make this tribute to a wonderful man. Even if I won't be there physically - I will be at the memorial in spirit. You betcha.

Thanks Jan.  Not sure if I'm adding names this year.  It tore at my heart last year to have their names read out loud.  Not sure if I can deal with that again.  Hearing names of people who died that I didn't even know was tough enough.

Much admiration and respect!

Edited to add: I think It'd be great if Jody does the reading.

Roberto Armando Canales

Henry Ray Bailey

There's also my dear friend Rick whom I had the pleasure of visiting one last night in Houston...he never told any of us his status and never looked ill but was already diagnosed with a malignancy by that last time I partied with him...and for the life of me I can't recall his last name or find my old adress books. So many friends are listed in those old books; some have survived and some didn't. I carry a lot of survivors' guilt because they left us so long ago, and here I am not even on meds yet...seems like a cruel treatment to their memory that I am still here chugging along, and even crueler that I am not able to recall Rick's last name. And he had a cool name, and was such a sweet man.

I must call our mutual friend in Miami tomorrow to get his surname. And to let her know that we're going to DC instead of Miami for our vacation.

And now I've remembered! See, I just needed to talk it out. And start to cry a little. So here is my list again:
