In Memory: Joseph

Today is aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Sunday, 4 May 2008.

The “aaaaa” are an accident of my arthritic hands, but perhaps full of meaning.

1970 – Kent State Killing Day

On this day in 1991, Joseph, HH’s wife’s best friend in NYC, a great friend to HH, died of AIDS.

I held Joe’s hand until the last breath, and then, to spare the others, walked down to the nurses’ station and asked them to pronounce.

2.16am, EDT.
