A man I really respected passed away in may of this year. I have spent Christmas with him for 5 or 6 years and its so different with out him. he knew how to lighten up the room and he taught me so much. People didn't even give him a chance because he was gay and was positive, but that never changed who he was. He was a lover to my step father who help raise me, a friend to many who accepted him and family to me and my mother. Christmas will never be the same without him and I miss him so much. Love you, T.P. I hope you got the peaceful after life you deserved.
