Just writing to all of you to inform you of the passing of and to say goodbye to one of my past Progressive Blogger members, and political activist Kenn Chaplin; he passed away a couple of days ago. He wrote a blog called “My Journey With AIDS” a while back, where he wrote a lot about his battle with that disease, as well as his political thoughts (he was a New Democrat Party supporter, as I recall).
It was not AIDS that caused his passing; he was diagnosed with terminal duct bile cancer a few weeks ago. He had made the decision to leave this world via MAID on Aug 31, but the disease rapidly progressed. Thankfully, it appears he passed away peacefully a couple of days ago and did not linger.
My condolences to his family and friends
RIP Kenn Chaplin
