Aids is not an epidemic. Name one non-drug using straight white male who has contracted AIDS in the past 15 years. Some poor decisions have consequences.

Honestly, equine therapy works wonders. Geez, two pretty girls gone, in one week! These boyfriend/men/husbands problems. Amanda, Lindz, anyone with afflictions, horses are amazing therapy. My horse has saved my life. My horse is my true soulmate. Horses are considered expensive, but one can take lessons, lease, volunteer with equine therapy with disabled children. please no mean comments, I say this with compassion for women. "she flies without wings"!

The amount of hate in the comments here is quite appalling. When someone dies, it is not appropriate, in any fashion, to leave comments full of hatred and bigotry. You that are filled with hatred, just remember, one day you too, will die. Wouldn't it be just too perfect if no one cared at all. This man was a good man, he made a difference in people's lives with his charitable works and he will be missed and remembered by many. My sincere condolences to his husband, family and friends.
