To Mark

One of the kids I grew up with died this morning. Meningitis. He started feeling ill a couple of days ago. Shows how fast a life can be cruely taken away. It's hard to accept.

Thoughts are with his mum Nic, dad Archie, and wee brother Craig.

Lewis Henshall   This month is the month it will have been a year since my friend Paul died of cancer. He died on 21 October 2002.
Jennifer Lynn Mann   I am very interested in that so many of you are willing to be outspoken with your sexuality. I agree "To be queer is to be different, to be gay is to be happy, and to be proud is to be both"

About a month ago I dated a gentleman who was unsure of his sexuality. And in the end he decided that men are his type. But what I don't understand is that he couldn't tell me himself, I was told indirectly by one of my other seriously gay friends. I just don't know why he can't tell me in person, or talk to me at all now. He has gone mute when I arrive. Well, thanks for the oppertunity to express my thoughts about this certain topic. I am thankfull for your thoughtfullness and respect for every person involved in any relationship.

I hope that each and every one of you find who you are looking for, if it be a woman or a man. Do all you can to achieve your dreams.
