I Know Someone Who Died of Aids

one of my dads best friends 32 People

    Very Many.....

    I worked at the London Lighthouse, an AIDS hospice for 19 months. I was in administration which meant I was a general dogsbody in the office!  But I made friends with a lot of the patients and it broke my heart when each died.

    He Was Sweet!

    He loved Princess Diana. He would help me through my depression. My dad worked with him, and his friend said "You know if you hang out with me, people might think you're gay." My daddy-o was like so what? May he be in Heaven now.
