    has lost a great champion and role model in Del Martin.  I would imagine that in 1955, neither Del nor Phyllis imagined that marriage equity would be a truth by 2004 in Massachusetts and 2008 in their home state of California.  They built the foundation for the struggles that would bring lesbian and gay couples in Mass to publicly assert our right to marriage equity, our right to enjoy the same legal rights conferred upon our commitments as straight folks have had.  

    Del Martin:  Your legacy lives on in all of us. We are grateful to you.
