I looked at the site and didn't find my answer...

Does your loved one have to have died? Can you honor someone who is LIVING wtih HIV/AIDS?

If I'm not mistaken, I believe the quilt is to honor those who have lost their battle.

By the way, does anyone know how/where I can find information regarding the quilt? My husband expressed a desire to be part of the quilt should his time come.

I am pretty sure that they still are honoring the people who have DIED from AIDS. When fully displayed the quilt is like an enormous graveyard. I saw it in New York Central Park and in DC. Its extreemly powerful. They also read names of those who have died during the ceremonies.
