Texas Gay Man Forced to Leave Partner With Alzheimer's After 34 Years Together
In a despicable turn of events, the sister of a man with Alzheimer's has gotten a court order appointing her as the legal guardian for her brother, and subsequently through his partner of 34 years out the door and sold their house. Queerty reports:

My partner Jim (left) and I (Lon) shared 34 Years together!! The past 6 years he has suffered from Alzheimer's Disease. He was hospitalized last year. His estranged sister filed for guardianship of him and won. We gave each other Power of Attorney, which she never revealed in court as I was never mentioned nor considered nor notified.


She put him in a Nursing Home and had criminal trespass orders against me to keep me away from him. I'LL NEVER BE ABLE TO SEE HIM AGAIN! She got his bank account from Social Security Disability and sold his house out from under me. I had 2 weeks to vacate uur [sic] home of 12 years.


If we were EQUAL in the eyes of the law we would be together till the end. But as it stands in Texas, a money hungry greedy relative was able to steal our life and toss me out as trash to pad her pocketbook. I pray God has mercy on her soul for her evil deeds. I am content knowing the world is coming around to acknowledge that ALL HUMANS ARE CREATED EQUAL and SHOULD HAVE EQUAL RIGHTS.


The fact that this couple had given each other power of attorney, and that it was swept aside without even a thought, underscores the need for marriage equality and full equal rights for gay and lesbian couples. My husband Mark and I have been together for 21 years, and I can't imagine being pulled away from his bedside, or vice versa, at a time when we both need each other the most.
