Billy Lovell participated in the AIDS Memorial Quilt.

December 1st is World AIDS Day.

I've had two friends die from this disease. My first friend to die of AIDS was Chris Miller, a friend from high school. I visited him the day before he died.

My next friend to die of AIDS was a man named Billy Lovell. Billy became a Christian and started a Bible study group for other AIDS patients. One year I visited Billy in the hospital on Christmas Day. So glad I didn't pass up those moments to visit them.

If you have a friends with AIDS, please don't abandon them. Show them the love of Christ.

Jesus once said, "I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me." - Matthew 25:36
