WOW! NO WONDER I'VE BEEN THINKING OF HIM CONSANTLY & JUST YESTERDAY I
THOUGHT I MUST CALL HIM!
THE SUCCESS OF HIS LAWSUIT -THERE IS THE TURNING POINT OR BRIDGE WHICH
ALLOWS HIM TO "REST IN PEACE" -- AS WHAT HE SET OUT TO DO HAS BEEN
ACCMPLISHED, AS YOU WELL STATED.
THIS IS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL LETTER ENCAPSULATING WHAT BOYD STOOD FOR, HE IS
A BLESSED MAN.
I WILL FORWARD THIS TO OUR FRIENDS AND WRITE YOU AGAIN LATER, ED, AFTER
I THINK A BIT.
I LOVED THAT MAN AND NOW HE SMILES ON US FROM HEAVEN. HIS TERRIBLE
ORDEAL IS OVER, HE IS WITH HIS ETERNAL LOVE.

Miraculously, things have come to an end with Boyd Graves.
In March his suit against the government for disclosure of its
role in the development of AIDS was accepted. The Justice
Department is engaged, and lawyers have been assigned to the

silver oxide, patented by Dr. Marvin Adelman as a cure for the
HIV virus. The efficiency of this treatment has not been

virus, other, usually more advanced, cases have not responded.
After March Graves continued to lose ground. He tried another
injection of Tetracyl, but the results were not positive. He
had a bone infection and his T-cells were down to 20. Valiently
putting his life on the line for what he believed, he elected
for one more Tetracyl before he resorted to retrovirus
Last Monday night he had severe chest pains and his excellent
caretaker-boys took him to the hospital. Next morning he was
intubated, comatose, and incommunicado. Thursday morning his
sister called and said he had an intractable lung infection. He
was to be put on "comfort care" at 2:30, meaning life support
would be withdrawn and more morphine would be applied.
He died that afternoon.
Rasa, it's incredibly perfect! His lease would have run out at
the end of the month. Last year your $5000 gift was the
down-payment on his lease which allowed the remaining monthly
payments to be within his monthly pension. He completed his
work: he successfully filed his suit. The work has been done;
now others can take over.
Fortunate is the man or woman who lives with a sense of destiny.
Boyd had no doubt about the importance of his work or his
destiny to do it. For all his complaining, he was a fortunate
And you and I, Rasa, were able to contribute to his remarkable
life and work.

Graves' lawsuit against the government, please let me know.
