“This was the time that Lauree and I were going to have. And it didn’t happen.”

Glenda Elliott

The difficulties faced by same-sex couples have created far too many stories of unrequited love. Glenda Elliott’s story is one of them. She came to StoryCorps to remember Lauree, the woman she fell in love with in small-town Georgia, at a time when it was difficult to imagine an acceptable path apart from marrying a man and starting a family.

Though she and Lauree planned for a late-in-life reunion, fate interfered. In “A Certain Kind of Love,” Glenda remembers the power of their bond.
