In my previous blog post about Dr. Kevorkian’s death, I expressed sorrow that I would never know if he read the letter and the copy of The Menstruation Ban Trilogy that I sent him in April. I contacted a friend of his (I’m not going to disclose who) and expressed my condolences, saying that I greatly admired Kevorkian, for his individuality more than anything else. I then said that for me the kicker was that I would never know if he read my letter and the Trilogy. The person responded, thanked me, and said that they recalled that Kevorkian had read my letter and enjoyed reading the Trilogy just before he got sick.
Words cannot describe how much this means to me. I will never get to meet Dr. Kevorkian, but at least I know that he took the time to read my letter and satire and that I was able to make him laugh. That gives me a lot of closure indeed!
