 AIDS Memorial Netherlands - Reggie Williams
You're the best thing that ever happened to me, Reggie!
Time: 2:34

I once lost my heart in the middle of a snow storm. It flew high amidst a Amsterdam sky, the blizzard heaving and belting, loosing lifeline. Fainter, fainter we held our breaths until it burst. Open, finally open we read each other's tales and held on to the rivers.

Have you ever seen someone go to heaven? I have, we did!

In loving memory of Reggie Williams

The AIDS Memorial Quilt celebrates the lives of real people who were loved and lost to HIV/AIDS. They are each remembered on a stretch of fabric called a panel. Do not know who made the panel for Reggie.
