Jane Nakatani, center, spoke about the Honor Thy Children Foundation, which she and her husband, Al (who was sick and unable to attend), started to talk about HIV/AIDS, especially to the Asian and Pacific Islander community, at the World AIDS Day ceremony at the National AIDS Memorial Grove December 1. The couple received the grove's Humanitarian Award. The San Francisco AIDS Foundation's Vince Crisostomo, left, and grove Executive Director John Cunningham joined Nakatani on stage. The Nakatanis started the foundation, and wrote a book, after losing all three of their sons, two from HIV/AIDS and one from homicide.
