Dearest Jeanne and Andrea,
No greater thing was ever done than to put down your life as Ryan did for the betterment of all people and to help educate the world.
The disease of Aids will some day. God willing be conquered. I have lessor hope for the disease of ignorance that is prevelant among so many.

Best wishes for all things good for the rest of your lives.
