By now, if you didn't already know John in person, you have come to know him a little bit through my writings. I know that you have seen most of the following pictures already, but not all together. I thought that it would be fun to look at all the things that make John... John. (The very things that make me love him so much!)He is definitely an outdoorsman!John loves speed!
(No, that's not his bike... he just wishes it was!)What's better than speed on the ground? Free falling through the clouds, of course!John is brother, uncle, and son
to this wonderful group of people:
Russ, Ginger and Maddie Harris; Stan and Pat SkeesOf course, he's the best husband ever
- to me!He's a wonderful father of two:
As I looked at the photos of John with each of the kids, I started seeing different qualities and roles that John has displayed as a dad...As Ethan's Dad:
Supporting DaddyAs Ellie's Dad:
First time Daddy
First love Daddy
(They had been reading the Chronicles of Narnia together since Ellie was 5 years old)
(He watched her take her first breath, and he held her hand as she took her last. When Ellie was born, she lay on her back, not crying, looking straight up at John's face. His face was also the last one she saw on this earth. This photo was taken during the last minutes of Ellie's life.)
"This is my beloved, and this is my friend."
