Oh man, you're here. I've been looking everywhere for you. Take it easy, Luisito. What happened? It's Raoul...He died, Julio. He just died. 2 Days Later: I wonder if they'll all be back here for me (sob). I've gotta be real careful this is never gonna happen to me. I hardly knew him...man, we just use to hang together...you know...party all night. I hope I'm cool. He's with my poor, sweet daughter, Anita, now...in a safer, peaceful place. All those years of drugs and women finally caught up to him. I remember when Raoul was an altar boy. Such a fine boy. I never dreamt I'd be doing his funeral mass. I wonder who that cute guy with Luisito is? Marisol, is that Jeff, Luisito's coach? Yes I think so. Iris...but please...not now...let's pay our respects to Raoul's mother. Raoul was special. He shared everything with his friends; and everybody was his friend. First Anita, now Raoul. Soon Rosa. This is scary. I ought to get tested. But what if? This is sad. All these young people. I never had so many funerals for young people before this AIDS business. To be continued. Protect yourself, get the facts. Call the AIDS hotline: 1-800-TALK-HIV. AIDS: It can happen to you.
