World Aids Day

Once again, we continue to think of those infected, affected and those that unfortunately, have passed. I continue to see more and more of us foregetting this day. Please take the time to remember those that have died, those infected with the virus and the children and families affected by the disease. I pray that each of you take the time to think about what you can do for for those with this life threatening disease. Give someone a hug and let them know they are cared for. Joey Pack

RE: World Aids Day

I lost my Best friend to Aids. She had cancer, and contracted it from her husband who was a drug user. She died in her home in May 2004, she died at the age of 42. For the many years we were friends I was graced by this lovely Angel, who loved everyone more than herself. I will always hold her close in my heart, as for the millions of others who suffer from this Virus. I shall never forget this day and those we pray for.

RE: World Aids Day

Aids is in my thoughts a lot, not just today on world aids day.

It really doesn't matter how someone got it (other than teaching someone else to prevent next time)

It really doesn't care if you're young or old, just found the love of your life, or that you're trying to get your act together in the first place.

It also doesn't care that you are a mom, dad, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, or best friend in the world.

But we can care; everyone is a person worthy of respect. Someone close to me lived with aids for many years; LIVED with aids. Everyone can help.

RE: World Aids Day

Joey, as you know, one of my brothers has AIDS. He was diagnosed over 20 yrs ago. This summer, he had to have heart surgery due to the disease destroying a valve. He's doing well now and has plans to buy some property here and build a house to live out the rest of his days close to his family.

Someday, perhaps, there will be a real cure.

Hi Joey,

If there is anyone out there who doesn't think they have reason to be concerned about aids they're living in the dark ages. I only know of one person that I knew personally who had aids and died of it but I'm sure there are more that I don't know about. Aids touches all of us at some point in our lives no matter who we are. We all need to pray for those who have it and that more of us won't get it. Thank you for reminding us Joey. Let's all pray for a cure to come soon.

Nancy
