Dave in Northridge's Testimonial

Transcript of Dave in Northridge's Testimonial

linkage: It's so wonderful to have you here at NetRoots Nation, sharing your story of the quilt. Can you identify yourself for us?

Dave in Northridge: Yes, I'm Dave in Northridge. My partner and husband Jim died suddenly on December 5th, and I wrote my first notice of that: "Widower after 41 years. What now?" Between when the police left and the mortuary came, and yes, I was perfectly happy to have the community to share this with immediately because...just because.
