"We found something in each other that made us happy and kept the dark side of existence a little farther away from our demanding, difficult lives. We only had a short time together, enough time to begin to hope that things could progress and life could change from loneliness to love, and then he was murdered by two fellow soldiers. Stolen away from his family, friends and me. You never know when life is going to change, or to end."

--Actress Calpernia Addams, on her relationship with Army Pfc. Barry Winchell, who was murdered July 6, 1999, in an anti-LGBT hate crime
