Michael Mefford died Feb. 5, 2005, after many years of living with and fighting the effects and complications of HIV. He put up a valiant struggle, all the while lovingly and selflessly helping his friends when he was needed. With his intellect and medical knowledge, he could always be counted on for expert care. When his partner, Sean, was ill he cared for him at home until his death in 2003.
Unconditional love was very important to Michael. Sometimes you were tested but always forgiven.
With his great strength of will he could push his body beyond its limits, but after losing Sean and his little dog, Pebbles, he began to lose his will and his strength here on earth.
At least now he is with his beloved family again and will nevermore feel pain and suffering.
I will not hear his voice again but I will not forget him. He was my friend and I will miss him
