The passing of a beautiful soul
      #235023 - 01/08/08 06:35 PM

I just wanted to share with you all an experience that has changed my life.

A couple of weeks ago, an ex who I am still good friends with calls me to tell me his ex-partner of 11 years has become very ill. They had not been in contact for a couple of years, but when he found out...he rushed to his side. It was not good. He brought him to be at his house. There is so much to this story I will have to write later, but I want to tell you this man has the greatest heart I have ever seen. No matter what the circumstances of the break up and what feeling and bitterness still existed, it all disappeared in his moment of need. My friend became the 24x7 care giver for his former partner with everything from feeding him, bathing him, taking him to the restroom, and just holding him. It was so amazing. I had the privelage of spending Friday caring for him. All through the late hours I sat at his bed and attended to his needs. I prayed over his weakened body, read my Bible, and journaled about the experience. Myself being HIV+, it was such a gift to be a part of this moment in his life.

Yesterday, he passed away. It was a peaceful event. There is joy in knowing he is not suffering. I only knew him for a week, but he changed my life.

If you are a spiritual person and would like to know all the details of how God blessed us all in this journey, please ask me. It was incredible.

To Phillip! Rest well my friend. You are a beautiful soul.

WT

I wish to offer my condolences to you , WT. It has always been difficult for me to come to terms with the death of someone who is taken, perhaps, too young. I hope you find peace.

May God continue to bless you in this way. I am sorry for your loss, although it seems that you already have peace with it . Your freind also seems as if he was blessed. May he rest in peace.
