    A friend of mine died today.

    This afternoon my friend Jason passed away, he was only 26 years old. Jason was a hemophilliac, when he was young he had a recived a blood transfusion and contracted HIV. Jason spent most of his life living with this virus and he never let it get him down. He loved to make people laugh, and he always loved everyone he met. I went to the hospital as soon as I got the call, but he had passed away shortly after my friend Jack called me. His sister said he was making jokes and being silly until the very end. The nurse that was helping him helped his sister sneak his cat David into the room. David spent the night in the hospital last night making sure that Jason was comfortable as he was leaving us. Jason loved that cat so much, it was his baby.

    Please pray for Jasons family. He left behind a mom and a sister, this has been a hard year for them as not only was a son/brother lost this year but a husband/father. I'd never heard anything more heartbreaking in my life then when I heard his mom crying. There must be no greater pain then to lose a child.

    I know Jason is at peace now, he hasn't been well for the last two years. I think he's spent as much time in the hospital as he had at home. His pain and suffering is now over.

    Laura, I am so sorry to hear about your friend. We have made a lot of progress with HIV but still have a long ways to go. He must have been a great guy to love his kitty so much.


    RIP Jason.

    I am sorry to hear about your friend Jason. That was sweet about his cat. At least he was surrounded by loved ones until the very end and that he stayed positive.

    RIP Jason

    Rest in peace, Jason. How nice that his kitty was able to be with him at the end. Another star shines in the sky tonight, Laura, for you and Jason's family. It'll be that one that twinkles just so, like laughter for your heart.

    Laura, my condolences.

    A late friend of mine had a young son who was also a hemophiliac...he had a transfusion at a young age...they said he'd live til 11, he made it to 13.

    It is horrible and stupid and tragic...God bless him and his parents, and his family. Jason is at peace now...

    Thank God for his friends, like you and Jack....and David!

    hugs
