    The beauty of it all brought tears to my eyes. I’m 65 years old, served proudly on the military and I never thought I would be witnessing a wonderful thing like this during my life time. Blessings to this beautiful couple, and may gay and lesbian people put back the honor and sacredness marriage deserves.
