Gay Actor Chris Salvatore Mourns Death Of 89-Year-Old Neighbor

We were touched to hear that Eating Out star Chris Salvatore had brought his ailing 88-year-old former neighbor into his apartment to live with him, after she was hospitalized for conditions surrounding leukemia.

But now, we are heartbroken to share that Chris's neighbor and friend, Norma, has passed away at the age of 89, after succumbing to leukemia and pneumonia. 

Chris shared the following message on social media:

“It’s with a heavy heart that I share the news that earlier this morning the world lost a truly inspiring, beautiful woman. 

“Norma is now resting peacefully in the eternal and while she may no longer physically be with us, her spirit will continue to fill the hearts of so many people. 

“Perhaps Norma’s lasting legacy is that her story helped the world to see the true meaning of love. 

“Norma reminded me that we all are created to love and all desire to be loved. 

“This year Norma has helped the world see the true meaning of Valentine’s Day. 

“To love another is not about living struggle free or never experiencing hurt or loss, but to fully and deeply open our hearts to one another without fear. 

“Each of us is lovable even with all of our differences. Love has no boundaries. May you rest in peace my sweet sweet lady, Norma. ❤️”

Our hearts go out to Chris, and everyone who was touched by Norma.

My deepest sympathies on your loss, you gave her a  wonderful gift in her later years and of course in the end. You gave her the gift of ❤️ and friendship, there are so many like her that do not have that in their life. I worked in healthcare and have seen people pass with no family/friends to be there in the end.  Bless you for all you have give/done for her and for being there for her.

Chris--thank you for sharing your story and more importantly reminding us about what unites us, a deep

need to love and be lived in return.  I wonder what would happen if we each looked at one another through the eyes of love.  A love that is uniquely human and makes no distinction of age, income, race, gender, national origin, sexual orientation.  This happens one heart, one human at a time....❤️

This breaks my heart. The way that Chris talked about her, it seems that she was a kind, charming, and sweet lady. And Chris is such a great guy who took care of her when she needed someone to.

I'm saddened to hear that she passed away. Chris did something for Norma that most people would have problems doing for thier own family members. He took care of her in the last leg of her life He truely is an inspiration. May She rest in peace.
