In support of Freedom to Marry bill


In support of Freedom

to Marry bill

I pray every day that the Freedom to Marry bill at our state Capitol will pass. It’s due to my strong religious faith that I believe we should celebrate the love of our fellow brothers and sisters.

I have many gay and lesbian friends. Their love and devotion to their partners are just as profound and loyal as the love and devotion my husband and I shared for 59 years.
