It is because of him that I try not to take things for granted. I should not have taken for granted the last moments I spent with John at his sister's wedding. It seems far too long ago. I would have told him how much he meant to me. I would have told him that he made me laugh when we were kids when there wasn't much to laugh about. I would have let him know that I was grateful that he helped teach me to ski. I would have reminded him of so many hilarious, crazy things we did as kids ... He will forever be our hero.
