    How terribly sad. He did so much for us. Twenty-eight years sick and he didn't get to live to find out any answers. Rest in Peace.

    When I saw the title of this thread I said a bad word.

    He gave the community an invaluable gift. Helped so many that he never knew or that never knew him or that he was behind Co-cure. He left us all an amazing legacy of communication.
    Peace.

    Wow, I did not know any of this and am so saddened to hear that such a strong advocate for the community passed away without any answers. May his memory be a blessing to his family and all who knew him.

    Here is a way that he is being honored on Facebook:

    This is sad. Condolences to his family. I remember Co-Cure well and was signed up to that for many years.

    Am not on FB, but I like the Blue Rose as a memorial and it is a beautiful idea.

    So sad to live with this illness so long and fight so hard without the acknowledgement, answers, help and treatment he so needed and deserved.

    One bright spot is that it sounds like he had an amazing and wonderful support system.

    Condolences to those who loved and cared for Ray.
