No, not a recent one. But twelve years ago my adopted brother Yuri lost his beloved partner, Todd. He's finally written about his experiences in a harrowing and deeply moving post here: http://yhospodar.blogspot.com/2007/07/end-of-world.html
Todd is among our beloved dead, a member of our extended family that crosses the boundaries of life and death. I think some of you who read this blog will appreciate Yuri's work. The post made me cry, and I also just like to publicize good writing.
