Gregory and Raymond Konz-Krzyminski

Gregory and Raymond Konz-Krzyminski

Greg: We are good family members and good friends. In return, we have good friends and supportive family members. We've been very blessed. Raymond: We've raised two children. We've buried three parents. Now we're caring for my aunt with Alzheimer's. We're always going to parties for our siblings and their children and grandchildren, and if there isn't a party, we make one! When people talk about family values... Greg: After Raymond's mom died, he invited my parents to move into our lower flat, where his mother had lived. It was handicap-accessible and my dad had had a stroke. During those years, I was living out of town during the week. I don't know any other in-law who would have done that. Raymond: Having been caregivers for dependent parents for 14 or 15 years, it's very clear to us that we don't want to put that kind of burden on anyone else. Greg: We didn't have to take these things on. We did it because this is who we are. I promised Raymond that, with all the caregiving he's done, he should be able to live where he wants to live. We would love to live somewhere where we could be legally married.

Together since July 6, 1983
