"VIRGINIA ROSS started as a hugger," the Daily News' Ron Goldwyn wrote about her in 2001. Virginia visited hospitals "to hug and rock babies left behind by AIDS- and HIV-infected mothers," Goldwyn wrote. That kind of love and compassion for the sick and those "left behind" by sufferers marked Virginia's life of service to AIDS and HIV patients, as well as in education programs to call attention to the disease and ways to prevent its spread. Her particular emphasis was on the impact the dreaded disease has on the African-American community, where for many years it was a forbidden topic because of its association with homosexuality.

And, it turns out, we're all of us "toots.
