Thank you once again BATA for preserving our brother's memory in the archives. You folks and all of your hard work have made it really easy to get a "Shot of Bill" to make a "bad day" better or great day greater. I know my brother John had a lot to do with it too and I thank him as well, but you guys really came through for the Ultimate goal in preserving knowledge and lessons for generations to come.

In the 70's families were discarding gay family members like they were non-humans. Fortunately our father lead by example and said "He still is my son and He still is your brother. Respect ... " that simple. In the 80's mostly gay men were dying of AIDS. If your family and friends hadn't left you by then, AIDS was going to take away whatever you had left. Our Brother chose to fight the disease in hope that it would buy him some precious time, but greater things occurred! Billy was part of those early on brave souls that made it possible for other people to live today with the disease and control it through medication. I love you Bill! 

I miss my brother Bill, I loved him very much and forever will. Your memories are a blessing to me and to all the folks who lives  you touched. Thank you SFBATV for preserving this treasure, thank you Brother John for your  passion and love for our Bill. Blessings to all those families and friends who lost their loved ones due to AIDS.
