Dear Friends and Stakeholders of Family Equality Council,

As many of you have heard by now, today the world is less beautiful after the death of Ric Swezey, beloved husband of Nick Scandalios, and loving father of Kate and Luke.  Nick, Ric and the kids have been and remain heroes to Family Equality Council, giving of themselves tirelessly for well over a decade now to make sure other LGBTQ families are able to form, able to thrive, and able to experience the joyful sense of equality and belonging that all families deserve.

This video by NBC news shows Ric winking at the camera and doing what he loved most in this world: enjoying time with his family. Just one example of many of how the lives of this family continue to shape our mission and work.

Nick, know you and the kids are loved more than we can possibly express by the Staff, Boards and so many others whose lives are touched by FEC.

Rest in peace.
The meaning of your life
is still
unfolding. 

Rest in peace.
In us
the meaning of your life
is still
unfolding.

Rest in peace, in us.
The meaning of your life
is still
unfolding. 

Rest. In us
the meaning of your life
is still
unfolding. 

Rest. In peace
in us
the meaning
of our lives
is still
unfolding. 

Rest.

– Alice Walker

We love you so,

Stan, Nancy, Alex and the Staff and Boards of Family Equality Council.
