Christmas was really hard for our family. The grandboys lightened the day but they were missing him too! Megan and Ken came up from Georgetown, SC (they live there now) and they stayed with me from Christmas Eve afternoon thru the Saturday after Christmas. There are many firsts without John coming our way. We all just have to learn how to make new traditions and get on with our lives even though that will be one of the hardest things I will ever have to do.

John loved his family. We always did everything together. We are now trying to figure out things to do with the family that is left. I know that John is up in Heaven looking down at all of us, watching and protecting us. He was such a good man, husband, father and grandfather. He also did work with the Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity and when we lived in NJ he worked with Make A Wish Foundation and the Christian Outreach Project at our Church. He was always a giver.
