Ron Flowers

Ron was a dear friend and worked with me at the University of Kansas. He was the first openly gay man I knew and loved as a friend. He honored me by inviting me to visit him at his parent's home where I was welcomed and treated as family. He died of AIDs early in the epidemic, before much there was much awareness about it and its dangers. I hope his death served as a warning to his friends and somehow made something good come from his death, because he was a wonderful person and deserved a longer life.
