Bill was an amazing person. He was kind to the elderly and to children, charitable to a fault, and a friend to all who knew him. If you met Bill, it would be difficult for you not to admire him as much as everyone else did.
I remember a sign he had on his office wall, a quote from Shakespeare - “Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind.”
Sadly, Bill contracted AIDS and died after suffering through a series of infections his body could no longer fight off.
My friend Marc and his life partner, Bill, were a couple. They met in college and it was love at first sight. If you had seen them together, you’d know what true love really is.
But when Bill was on his death bed, Marc wasn’t allowed to see him. Bill’s parents refused to admit Marc to visit and say goodbye one last time. Though they were lovers, Marc wasn’t “family” because he didn’t have that piece of paper that makes it legal.
Bill’s father blamed Marc for Bill’s dying of AIDS, even though Bill contracted had contracted the virus through a tainted blood transfusion (hospital blood supplies were not tested for AIDS prior to 1985). Marc was homosexual and that was enough to brand him an evil abomination of nature who murdered his illicit lover.
