  1. Thank you so much for keeping the list current. I look forward to the day when there is a cure and no further names are added.

  2. I experienced profound sadness to see how long the list is and recognized many names. I concur with Katz … let there be no more names added.

    God bless you for doing this list preserving memories of many who departed this world too early.

    I think it is wonderful to honor those who lost their lives to aids. It does not matter if you know them or not. It allow us to acknowledge their contribution. Especially those who serve our community as leader, advisor, interpreter or etc . . .

    By the way I believe I recognize one name – Kenneth Ray Moore – he was born and raised in North Carolina. He attended and graduate from Eastern North Carolina School for the Deaf, Wilson, NC in May of 1982. Also went to Galludent University but never graduated. He was my high school classmate but we never travel in the same circle.

    Also I agree with J. Katz say about finding a cure for aids. I am looking forward to hear the news of permanent cure for a long time since I first heard word “Aid Epidemic” in early ’80. Let’s keep praying for it!!

    Thanks you for taking time to set up this beautiful and simple memorial website.

    Thank you,
