The victims of the AIDS virus are not only those who have died. Their families are left behind to cope with the tragedy of a life-- often a young life-- taken quickly and cruelly. Such is the story of David and Ardie Rodale. David was a musician, playwright, painter, computer expert, a 30-year-old whose creativity and drive were just beginning to coalesce into a life of purpose and joy. And then, suddenly, he developed pneumonia and died, a victim of AIDS. His mother, Ardie, was faced with the immensity of that loss-- and this book is the result of her three years of uncovering the inner meaning and message in the death of her son. For in the intense emotion of living with that death, Ardie found new life, new purpose-- new light.
