I have written about this before, but here is a reminder.
In 2014 I visited Most Holy Redeemer Catholic church in San Francisco, and ordered a tile for their Commemorative Wall. It says :
John LoCoco and everyone I met here i San Francisco who died of AIDS.
We met in 1987 just a day before he was going to meet Pope John Paul II. As a person with HIV he had been chosen to meet the Pope, and here they are!
John told me what he had said to the Pope:
He had asked him to be more Christ like.
I will write about John now.
