One response to “AIDS Candlelight Memorial

  1. Very moving ceremony (as always) at tonight’s candlelight memorial for “love & compassion, advocacy & action” re: HIV/AIDS. Reveille/Desert Voices performed a # of songs, and Curt Beall sang his song “I’ll Remember You” as the Aids ribbon was displayed. Keynote speaker Dr. Heather Moroso remembered her friend Jeremy Isa who recently lost his 6 year battle with AIDS. Numerous people (including me) called out the names of those we have lost to AIDS. Tonight’s service was also in memory of Dr. Jean Baker, who lost her son Gary to Aids in 1989.
