I just saw this on my FB page from the Red Ribbon Army... http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20471662,00.html

Last Comic Standing star Mike DeStefano passed away this Sunday at the age of 44 from a massive heart attack.  He was HIV-positive and contributed to POZ Mag.  I just wanted to share this with all you. Felt obligated to do so.

I am just so stunned and extremely saddened by this news.  :'(  I didn't even know him, not personally, but WOW, this is hitting me.  I suppose he left a mark on my heart & soul.

My condolences to his family and friends.  RIP Mike!  I'm thinking heaven needed a funny angel and he chose you.  Thank you for making me laugh and inspiring me to do so as often as possible.

I read that earlier on the poz home page and was sadden to hear the news, even though I didn't know of this guy.  It always makes me wonder whether something like this would have happened anyway regardless of HIV, or if HIV had a lot to do with it.  Anyway, it is sad to hear when another HIVer passes for any reason.
