A heartbreaking quote from Judy Shepard:
"After Matt came out to me, he once asked me if I thought gay couples would ever be allowed to get married. I told him I didn’t think it would happen in my lifetime, but it probably would in his. It’s so sad, and ironic, that it turned out the other way. But this case warms my heart, to think that his dream is still coming true. Dennis and I look forward to the day when loving, committed couples are able to marry in every state.”—Judy Shepard on the Prop 8 decision
I wish Matt's mom and my mom—his Judy and my Judy—had been able to meet. I think they would've become great friends.
