Quotes from the news wire:
In the very beginning, callers talked about seeing murders, the first few weeks of the line, someone called and they said that they robbed and killed homosexuals, which corresponded to what was actually happening in New York City at the time. That bothered him from the very beginning… It was a real moral dilemma for Allan. He wrestled with this for a very long time.
He was 35 at the time when I met him, he was young, super excited and dedicated to it. And he kept that energy up. But over the years, it just became his primary work. He didn’t make money from it. So he had to support himself doing carpentry. And over the years, it certainly took a toll on our relationship.
I would hope that they would apologize, it wasan accident. It was not their fault. It was an accidental death, but I’m sure that person carries around a lot of pain about it. And if they did come forward to apologize, I think it would be very healing for them. And for me. Although, I have forgiven that person because I knew that it wasn’t done intentionally. It was just a tragic accident. So I don’t hold any ill will towards the person at all. Allan was just at the wrong place at the wrong time.
He died while The Apology Line was still running, and it always bothered that he wasn’t able to complete it in the way he wanted to. So I felt it was my duty as his wife and being a supporter of the line to always make sure it didn’t disappear into the dustbin of history, so to speak. And that it would be brought to the public again, in some way, shape or form.
