    READER ¼ DOC Twenty One Years to Midnight Twenty One Years to MidnightA personal comment I read this book for the love of my professor and mentor DWG A lack of a civil marriage caused some of his colleagues not to allow him to common decency of allowing him time to be with his dying partner When they figured it out it was too late What they did to make amends was not enough Their cruelty makes me cry these many years later Rest in Peace DWG Court cases tell stories So stories used are sympathetic 1 A husband dies of non AIDS related disease and leaves his husband legal husband in one state and
