During the toasts at Eugene and Lenore’s rehearsal dinner, Lenore’s brother stood up, looked around at the 250 people that had gathered to celebrate this wonderful couple and he said to the couple: “You have a family that loves you, a community that supports you, and you have found each other. You have absolutely everything you
