A Bit of Sad News

Del Martin passed away today. Martin (pictured above) along with Phyllis Lyon were the first same sex couple to be married in California on June 16, 2008. They were married by San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom after 55 years together.

Seeing their ceremony on television brought tears to my eyes. These two people who had been each other's lives for 55 years finally being able to say, "we made it." I'm glad she lived to see the day.
