I had a dream about a roommate had back in the early 1980's, Bendy Hoar. So I Googled him. I found in on the quilt. Sorry that we didn't make keeping in touch a priority. He was a wonderful, funny, kind man, who is a great dancer and friend. You are loved!

I still miss Bob (Robert) Morris. He was my brother and my friend. It does not seem possible that he has been gone 20 years. He didn't get to see my daughter grow up or see her as a beautiful bride on her wedding day. This crisis tore our family apart but I still love him to this day. We will see each other again. Be waiting for me, Bob!

I made this quilt many years ago for my brother jimmy, when aids was considered a secret. I don't keep it a secret anymore. Seeing my quilt has brought me many emotions today. Happiness, sadness, loss and hopefulness. I hope all who see my brother's quilt, will see a life cut short too soon by a terrible disease. He is truely missed. I hope all who see this quilt and panel will know that there is love and hope and that one day there will be a cure.

My brother Tony died 8/11/90 from AIDS related cancer at age 33. He was funny, a fantastic cook, wonderful friend to all and threw fabulous Christmas parties at his duplex in DC. One yr was a costume party & he dressed as Barbara Bush!!
When he found out he went from HIV positive to AIDS, he live his last 4 years with Courage,Strength & Purpose! He went into Inner City schools in DC and talked to students frankly about AIDS and answered questions honestly. He also hosted "Mastery Workshops" in his home, (I had the honor to attend). The workshop included guided visulization, journaling and honest talk about feelings in front of the group. It included food and emotional support for the participants.
The purpose of the workshop was to help people feel empowered and not see themselves as Victims of the disease. I came home feeling Proud and more at Peace. It didn't change the situation,but it did change the perception/attitude of life and that makes all the difference!!
I went to DC in 1992 to deliver his Quilt #02592 at the Washington Monument and there were over 30,000 panels! President George H Bush refused to acknowledge the friends & family. When we did a peaceful candlight vigil around the Whitehouse,there were police on hourseback with rubber gloves!
Thing have changed a lot since 1990, people are living longer and there's a chance to eradicate AIDS worldwide and I'm in Grattitude for that! I will ALWAYS Remember and Miss my Brave brother Tony Head!
