I’m so sorry for your loss, miranda deely. I know from personal experience how hard HIV hit the stage acting community in New York. Truly awful. As to your dad, you have my deepest sympathy.

How many times I’ve played that what-if game, thinking about somebody I loved might have made it just a little bit longer, just long enough for the cocktail treatments to be released.

Thanks so much for reading and replying. I find it very helpful to write to try to work some of this out.
