Thanks to all of you for your messages about Conor’s passing. The picture below is from the memorial service 2 days ago. He would have been so honored that so many young people came to express how much they appreciated their support from him. Our home welcomed all our kids ‘homies.’

About 100 people showed up at Emeryville Marina where we spent many happy times over many happy years. My fella lived large and loud! His cancer moved quickly which was devastating to all who loved him, but there is comfort in the fact that his pain wasn’t prolonged.

He is the love of my life. He was an incredible father to his three children, and a great support to many many others as well.

5. Angus Cloud’s Mother Described Hickey’s Passing as Causing ‘Devastating Grief’

In a June post, Cloud’s mom wrote that grief was devastating.

Today I made planters out of Conors Wellies. The first pic is from the night he asked me to spend the rest of our lives together.

I truly appreciate all the messages and the offers of help from our friends. We were very lucky to have such a wonderful circle of goofballs to share the good times and the tough times. Like all who lived in the time of AIDS, death is no stranger to our circle. Too many wild things left us way too soon. It’s a cliche to say those loved one live on in our hearts but it’s true.

I am doing the best I can in this time of devastating grief. Conor and I had a great big rowdy love and our three babies are incredible kind young adults.

I know I will eventually get out of the puddle of tears I am swimming in and create the next chapter in the book of me. For now, please know that I very much appreciate the support you have given me even though I have not responded to offers for help. I feel grateful to have such a beautiful home to hibernate with my grief, and all the conflicting emotions that I am cycling through each minute of each day. Conor and I faced a lot of challenges in our marriage and family, but love is the verb sought to live by. We always said “tic and tin baby”. Those of you who know Irish natives don’t need a translation !!
