    And SHAME, SHAME, SHAME on America for forcing people who are on their death beds to have to find ways to travel to other parts of the country just to get married like any other CITIZEN could do in the OWN HOME! SHAME!

    Rest In Peace, John Arthur. Forgive our ignorant society, that cannot recognize that love is a gift from God and no one, no government should ever deny that right to any couple who wishes to marry. Condolences to your family and your husband, Jim Obergfell, his family and all of your friends.

    RIP Sir

    I love my boyfriend, whom I want to marry dearly – and the thought of him out of my life is something I rarely think of.

    I’m sorry it had to end this way for you two.

    <3 M

    They brought beauty to loss by fighting for their dignity and equality when they were at their most vulnerable. Bravo to them, and shame on Ohio for making them have to go through this additional stress as John faced death.

    RIP, John. Condolences to John’s husband, Jim.

    When ever I see the journey of John and Jim, I am moved by the love that drove them.
    I am so happy that they will be able to rest side by side for eternity, because of their courage and also because of Judge Black who stood to be counted and validated their vows.
