James did not hide his special character... he loved being gay and being happy/
He was my last 'buddy' in a buddy system in NY State...he brought laughter and light into my life and my partner's life at that time.
He died one year before the 'good' and effective drugs came along.. I only wish he had lasted another year.
He became like a little brother to me. Annoying at times, but what little brother isnt'? I will always cherish my memories of him.
