Alzheimer's Patient Wants To Marry While He Still Recognizes His Partner

Californians Ed Watson and Derence Kernik have been together for 40 years, but Ed has been been diagnosed with Alzheimer's and the couple is desperately hoping to marry while he can still recognize Derence.
After 9 months and juggling the case around the courts, it looks like a decision on Pro8 is going to take more time. A request to lift the stay that has been in effect all this time was filed last week. If the stay is lifted, gay couples including Ed and Derence would be able to marry. The only other option is to travel across the country.
The hate groups are requesting that the stay remain in place. 
Pro8 was found unconstitutional.  Turn it up because the sound is bad and get out your hankies.
