To the Editor:
I support the idea of an AIDS memorial but I am saddened that it had to come to fruition because of the demise of St. Vincent’s Hospital (“AIDS Memorial Planning Kicks Off April 25,” by Nathan Riley, April 25-May 8). It still will not be enough to honor my many friends who died. While very ill, they worked tirelessly to stop the spread of the disease. A more fitting memorial would be for members of our community to stop giving and receiving the virus.
