    I remember this story tragic. Wonder what legal recourse he has if any. This is terrible.

    That's so sad. I hate that basic civil rights that are supposed to be granted to all citizens of our country, as stated in our constitution, are denied to us. It's a perfect example of house separation of church and state isn't actually happening.

    A will would not have gotten him any of the benefits discussed in the article.

    do you have any idea how spousal benefits even work? don't speak unless you have some idea what you're saying actually applies.

    I realize that a will would not have helped here, but I might also add, a will in some cases still means nothing. I feel for the guy.
