Beloved dead – The AIDS Quilt – too many friends to count

I’m standing by my brother’s first partner’s square on the Quilt. This was the last time the entire quilt could be laid out in one place. It was at the lawn of the Pasadena Rose Bowl.  I was a monitor every day it was there. I was honoured to do it.

We were assigned squares to watch over with our handy big box of Kleenex. We folded every night and unfolded it every morning. It was a hard weekend but well worth it. I’d do it again in a heartbeat.
